    Man Accused of Shooting Lawn Mower for Not Starting
    , July 26, 2008

    MILWAUKEE — A Milwaukee man was accused of shooting his lawn mower because it wouldn't start. Keith Walendowski, 56, was charged with felony possession of a short-barreled shotgun or rifle and misdemeanor disorderly conduct while armed.

    According to the criminal complaint, Walendowski said he was angry because his Lawn Boy wouldn't start Wednesday morning. He told police quote, "I can do that, it's my lawn mower and my yard so I can shoot it if I want."

    A woman who lives at Walendowski's house reported the incident. She said he was intoxicated.

    Walendowski could face up to an $11,000 fine and six years and three months in prison if convicted.

    A call to Walendowski's home went unanswered Friday morning.
