It's not just DWI - call it a case of MWI. An eastern Missouri man is accused of drunken driving -- on a riding mower. Police in the town of Iron Mountain Lake say an officer spotted the suspect driving down the street on his mower, pulling a trailer with a case of beer.

Police say the man also had a flask of whiskey in his pocket.

Police aren't releasing the suspect's name. They report his blood alcohol level was well above the legal limit.

He now faces a number of charges, including driving while intoxicated.
