Mayor caught driving lawn mower on highway with beer in hand

Police in Horry County, South Carolina chased a man riding a lawn mower with an open beer in hand.

And, as it turns out, the driver is John Gardner, the Mayor of the small South Carolina Town of Aynor.

The bizarre stop was made last month and dash cam captured it all.

Gardner was reportedly driving home, holding a can of Miller Light, and can be heard asking officers if they knew who he was.

Gardner has not been charged with DUI.
