HOUMA, La. (AP) - A 50-year-old Houma man taking a midnight ride on a lawnmower was arrested and accused of driving while intoxicated.

Houma police say they arrested Edward Duke around 12:30 a.m. Tuesday after spotting Duke piloting his lawnmower without lights.

Police tell The Courier that Duke appeared intoxicated and subsequently failed a field sobriety test. He also had an outstanding warrant for driving while intoxicated in New Mexico.

Duke was booked into Terrebonne Parish jail on charges of second offense DWI and operating an unsafe vehicle.

It was unclear whether Duke has an attorney.
