MADRID, Iowa (AP) - A middle-of-the-night ride on a lawn mower landed one Iowa man in jail.

The Boone County Sheriff's Office says deputies stopped the man on Highway 17 near Madrid around 1 a.m. Wednesday after receiving reports of someone driving a mower all over the road with no headlights. Madrid is about 25 miles northwest of Des Moines.

The man was arrested for drunken driving. The Sheriff's Office says his blood-alcohol level was .190 - well above Iowa's limit of .08.
