This was no high-speed chase.

Police in Vancouver, Washington, say a man on riding mower refused to stop for officers.

According to officers, the chase began when a stranger complained that Stephen Ray Castor rode the mower through his fence gate and smashed a window with a lawn chair.

Police report Castor was doing about three miles an hour on his mower and wouldn't pull over.

Authorities say an officer grabbed Castor and pulled him off the machine when he drove toward the officer.

Castor is being held on $40,000 bail and is due in court tomorrow.

Prosecutors say he could face a number of serious charges, and are considering whether he can be charged with drunken lawn mower driving.
