MUI: Mowing Under the Influence

A North County man on a riding mower is accused of driving under the influence -- it's not clear if the controlled substance allegedly involved was grass.

Sheriff's deputies said William Ebbers, 43, swerved in the intersection of North Santa Fe Avenue and Townsite Drive in Vista at about 7:15 p.m. on Tuesday, the North County Times reported. He nearly mowed his way into a truck, according to deputies.

Ebbers was booked at the Vista jail on suspicion of driving under the influence of a controlled substance, Deputy Zach Harris said.
