A Tennessee vendor hired to drive children and families using a motorized lawn mower to pull the “Santa’s Train” carts during a local parade was accused of operating the machine under the influence of Methamphetamine with young passengers on board.
On the evening of November 11, Tazewell, a quaint town in Tennessee, hosted their annual Christmas Tractor Parade. One of the features at the event was “Santa’s Train,” which allowed children and families to take a ride in red carts towed by a motorized lawn mower. The 40-year-old man charged with driving the “train” was appointed by the third-party vendor.
Before the parade began, the man was giving rides to passengers, and several people at the event became concerned when they thought he was driving unsafely. There were many officers on site, and when one of them became aware of the situation, they made the man stop the vehicle.
