BARRIE, Ont. - A man who decided to help clear the street with his own push snowblower ended up with a public intoxication ticket.
Police in Barrie, Ont., north of Toronto, say it was for the man's own protection as he was too intoxicated to operate the machine and was almost struck twice by passing vehicles Tuesday evening.
Officers out on patrol noticed him.
Police arrested the 41-year-old man and held him until he was sober.
Sgt. Doug Henderson said he doesn't know if the man had an explanation for his actions.
A public intoxication ticket runs $55.
