Police: Man was DUI on lawn tractor

Posted: Updated:
NEW FREEDOM, Pa. (WHTM) -

A southern York County man was arrested Monday night after he allegedly punched a woman and drove a lawn tractor while drunk, police said.

Jerome Carl Foltz, 56, was driving the tractor on N. Second Street in New Freedom when he stopped in the middle of the road Monday night, kicked the woman's car and punched her in the head, according to Southern Regional police.

Police said Foltz had been locked out of his home because of his intoxication, and had kicked a door and cut a screen with a knife before he took off on the mower.

He was also uncooperative with police and was yelling obscene language in the street when officers arrived, police said.

Authorities said once he was in custody, Foltz cut his face when he head-butted the cage partition in the police cruiser, and yelled racial slurs while at a hospital.

He was arraigned on charges of driving under the influence of alcohol, drivers required to be licensed, simple assault, disorderly conduct, public drunkenness, harassment, and operation of an unregistered vehicle.

He was then sent to York County Prison on $5,000 bail.
