Riding high is a no-no

A Glens Falls [New York] man who was arrested Thursday night in connection with charges that he had a safe full of pot stolen from his home was charged [again]early Saturday when police found him driving downtown on a riding lawnmower while under the influence of marijuana, police said.

Donald L. Johnson, 42, of Ridge Street, drew police scrutiny because he had a man riding on the hood of the tractor as he crossed Glen Street near South Street at 12:09 a.m., said Glens Falls Police Sgt. Keith Knoop. Glens Falls Police Officer Seth French approached the men, and found that Johnson appeared intoxicated and admitted he had smoked marijuana, Knoop said. So he was charged with driving while ability impaired DWAI by drugs, a misdemeanor, and issued 10 traffic tickets, Knoop said.
