A 46-year-old Rawlins man with a history of drinking and driving convictions recently led Rawlins Police on a short pursuit through the city – behind the wheel of his orange tractor.
The man drove back to his house, parked the tractor and refused to cooperate with law enforcement. Eventually, the man was taken into custody, and charged with his fourth DUI – a felony – along with several other misdemeanors. Cali O’Hare reports.
