Man faces drunken tractor ride charges

OHIOVILLE, Pa. (AP) - September 20, 2011

Online court records don't list an attorney for 44-year-old Mark Grove, of Ohioville, who did not immediately return a call for comment Monday after the Beaver County Times reported his arrest.

Police say they were responding to a 911 call reporting an "out of control male" when they encountered Grove on the tractor driving down the middle of the road Thursday afternoon.

Police say a coffee mug sitting on the tractor contained beer and say Grove told them, "I'm drunk. Just take me home."

Instead, police arrested Grove and that's when they say he kicked an officer and head-butted a partition that encloses prisoner's in the squad car's back seat.
