Intoxicated tractor driver apprehended on Old Town Road

Huntingtown, MD - In the case of a story not too far out of the ordinary in Southern Maryland, the response to a June 2 incident at the intersection of North Solomons Island Road and Old Town Road was quite noteworthy.

Deputies were dispatched to a complaint of an intoxicated subject at the Huntingtown 7-Eleven who was not whipping a Porsche, but rather was ‘ridin’ on a tractor’.

The complainant said that the subject later identified as Walter Jay Brown Sr., 60 of Huntingtown, arrived at the convenience store on a lawnmower with a 12-pack of beer strapped to it. Sgt. Basham responded to the call, arriving and observing Brown driving his mower on the shoulder of N Solomons Island Road and Old Town Road in Huntingtown. Upon making contact, Brown was deemed as incoherent while considerably slurring his words. He could ride no more that evening.

Brown was arrested and taken to the Calvert County Detention Center where he would later be issued a warning for trespassing from the 7-Eleven, and ultimately charged for both possession of an open container and for intoxicated public disturbance.

However, this is not Brown’s first run-in with the law. As a matter of fact, back in 2016, Brown was arrested on multiple occasions. First on January 9, Brown was arrested for disorderly conduct following a response to a check welfare call. That same year on May 28, Brown was arrested and charged with third degree burglary, malicious destruction of property, and intoxicated endangerment after he broke into a victim’s home and refused to leave the premises following a request not to return.
