GREELEY — A 53-year-old Weld County man accused of bar hopping in Garden City on a lawnmower is facing a DUI charge.

The Greeley Tribune reports (http://bit.ly/1lBDl5s ) Kenneth Welton was arrested at about 10 p.m. Tuesday after visiting two area bars. A deputy said the man had bloodshot and watery eyes, an odor of alcohol on his breath, difficulty with motor skills, slurred speech and was unable to stand without support. Welton refused both roadside sobriety testing and blood or breath tests.

An arrest affidavit says he is a habitual traffic offender and has a revoked driver's license.

The Weld County District Attorney's Office has until Friday afternoon to file formal charges.
