A Franklin, Indiana man who's been arrested once for driving his lawnmower while drunk was arrested again over the weekend for the same exact reason. A sheriff's deputy was sent to a Franklin lawn around 5:15 p.m. after a caller said a man wearing a neon green shirt and riding a red lawnmower pulled into his yard and began to mow his grass. The caller said he told the man to get off his property. A Franklin police officer spotted the man on his lawnmower on a county road. The man was identified by his driver’s ID card as Barry K. Ridge. Ridge told the sheriff's deputy that he was headed from his uncle's house back to his home. The deputy said he noticed Ridge's eyes appeared glassy. According to the police report, Ridge's breath test at the Johnson County Jail registered .165. The legal limit in Indiana is .08. Ridge was arrested on a preliminary charge of OWI with a previous conviction. His lawnmower was also impounded. (

These men also found out the hard way that the sneakers were just knock-offs when they tried to sell them at a consignment shop. Not only that, the store’s surveillance camera captured crystal-clear video of them as they tried to cash in on the fake Jordans. One employee of the store had no idea they were stolen and said, “It just seemed like a normal transaction. They didn’t stutter. They just told me they wanted to sell it.” He told the trio, “They’re fake. We can’t buy them.” Police released the footage last week as they continued to look for the trio. (
