Mulch or I'll Shoot!

Lawncare hijinks courtesy of Dave Barry.......

A Milwaukee man was accused of shooting his lawn mower because it wouldn't start.

Walendowski said he was angry because his Lawn Boy wouldn't start Wednesday morning. He told police quote, "I can do that, it's my lawn mower and my yard so I can shoot it if I want."

It's hard to argue with that. This seems a bit steep,though....

Walendowski could face up to an $11,000 fine and six years and three months in prison if convicted.

I anticipate he'll get a smaller fine and probation as long as he promises to refrain from assaulting horticultural machinery.
