There are all sorts of ways to endanger yourself and others and get a DUI. One of the more unique methods is to be busted driving some landscaping machinery while drunk.

A man in Massillon was arrested for his sixth DUI Friday night, but this one was a little different than his previous endeavors.

It seems that his rap sheet had led to a suspended license, so he figured he'd hop onto his lawnmower instead, a bit of ill-conceived logic that strains the brain. The man, whose name has not been released, relayed the information to officers as he tried and failed to walk, needing them to hold him up.
