Police said he had used the mower to drive to a store about a mile from his home and was arrested on his way back. Police had the lawn mower towed.

Police said a breath test showed that Bowles' blood alcohol level was 0.144 percent, above Ohio's limit of 0.08 percent.

Police said it was Bowles' third drunk driving-related arrest in six months.

Vermilion is a Lake Erie town about 40 miles west of Cleveland.
