AUGUSTA — City police said issued a summons to an Augusta man on a charge of operating a riding lawnmower under the influence, according to social media posts Monday night.

On Wednesday, Deputy Chief Kevin Lully told the Kennebec Journal that Edson Moody, 44, was issued a summons on a charge of operating under the influence in connection to the incident.

A Facebook post published at 8:25 p.m. Monday shows a picture of two Augusta cruisers appearing to pull over a small riding lawnmower. The post does not provide additional details about when and where the incident occurred.

The post reads: “Although it’s not uncommon to make an arrest on a lawnmower for an OUI, it has been known to happen from time to time. However, we can’t think of a recent instance when it happened in the winter.”
