Police say convenience store employees turned away 51-year-old Tony Caulder when he came to the store earlier this month because they thought he was drunk.
Officials tell WMTW-TV that the employees followed the Kennebunk man outside to make sure he wasn't getting into a car and called police when he rode off on the lawn mower.
Police charged him with operating under the influence after stopping him a short time later. Nobody answered at a phone listed in Caulder's name.
