OHIOVILLE, Pa. (AP) — A Pennsylvania man is accused of assaulting a police officer after he was arrested on a drunken-driving charge — aboard a lawn tractor.

Police say they were responding to a 911 call reporting an "out of control male" when they encountered 44-year-old Mark Grove, of Ohioville, driving the tractor down the middle of the road Thursday afternoon.

Police say a coffee mug sitting on the tractor contained beer and say Grove told them, "I'm drunk. Just take me home."

Instead, police arrested Grove. That's when they say he kicked an officer and head-butted a squad-car partition.

Online court records don't list an attorney for Grove. He also did not immediately return a call for comment from The Associated Press after the Beaver County Times (http://bit.ly/qsj0KL) reported his arrest Monday.
