A North Platte man has been sentenced to a year in jail for being drunk when he drove his lawn mower on a city street on his way to a liquor store.

Donald Wymer was sentenced Tuesday in a Lincoln County
court to 365 days in the county jail for a third-offense drunken
driving conviction. The 51-year-old Wymer's driver's license also
was suspended for 15 years, and he was ordered to pay a $600 fine.

Police say an officer saw Wymer drive to liquor store on his
riding lawn mower.

After he left the liquor store, a Nebraska State Patrol trooper
stopped him in a residential neighborhood, where he failed a field
sobriety test.
