A DUI arrest can come when you are moving in ANY vehicle. The Statute for Georgia which governs ANY Georgia DUI (doesn’t matter if it’s a Gwinnett DUI, Cobb DUI, Fulton DUI or any of the cities like Johns Creek DUI, Roswell DUI or Dunwoody DUI) they are all covered under O.C.G.A. 40-6-391. Inside of that statute reads “A person shall not drive or be in actual physical control of any moving vehicle while:.” The essence of the Georgia DUI statute is in actual physical control of any moving vehicle. Many people only think that a moving vehicle is either a car or a motorcycle but that isn’t the case.
This is what one man just recently found out when he was arrested on his lawnmower heading to buy more beer. According to Macon.com and WMAZ a middle Georgia man was arrested for Driving his lawnmower to purchase more beer. After being stopped by the officers he was arrested for DUI. REMEMBER that a DUI arrest isn’t limited to just a car or motorcycle.
