GARDEN CITY, Colo. — A Weld County man is facing a DUI charge after being accused of bar hopping on a lawnmower, the Greeley Tribune reported.

Kenneth Welton was arrested about 10 p.m. Tuesday after visiting two bars in the area. A deputy said Welton had bloodshot and watery eyes, an odor of alcohol on his breath, difficulty with motor skills, slurred speech and couldn’t stand without support. The deputy said Welton refused roadside sobriety testing and blood or breath tests.

An arrest affidavit says Welton is a habitual traffic offender and has a revoked driver’s license.
