CITRA, Fla. - A 68-year-old Citra man who says he has an uncontrollable drinking problem was charged with driving a lawn mower under the influence, according to Marion County deputies.

James David Gray was arrested on Wednesday afternoon after deputies found Gray driving a red lawn mower southbound in northbound lanes of Northeast 30th Court. Deputies said when they stopped Gray, his eyes were bloodshot, his speech was slurred and there was a cold beer open in a cupholder on the lawn mower.

Gray, who was recovering from a drinking problem, decided to buy an 18-pack of Natural Ice beer on his way home from cutting grass because he was depressed from monetary problems and it was hot outside, according to deputies.

He is being held without bond at the Marion County Jail.
