|Man shoots lawnmower|
A 56-year-old US man has been arrested after shooting his lawnmower because it wouldn't start.
"I can do that," Keith Walendowski, 56, from Wisconsin, reportedly told police after his arrest. "It's my lawn mower and my yard, so I can shoot it if I want."
Milwaukee police charged Mr Walendowski, pictured, with possession of a short-barreled shotgun or rifle and disorderly conduct.
He could face a fine of up to £5,500 and six years and three months in prison, if convicted.
Police arrested Mr Walendowski in his basement and recovered a shotgun, shells, a handgun and also a stun gun at the home.
Mr Walendowski said he would tell police "the truth," according to the complaint.
"I got pissed because my lawn mower wouldn't start, so I got my shotgun and shot it," he said.
As for the mower, a local retailer said the gunshot damage could make its repair unlikely.
"Anything not factory recommended would void the warranty," Dick Wagner of Wagner's Garden Mart told the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel.
