JONESBOROUGH, Tenn. (AP) -- A tractor driver doing contract mowing for the state says he wrecked after a man threw a beer at him.
The Johnson City Press reported Washington County authorities charged 23-year-old Jonathan A. Beck with aggravated reckless endangerment. Beck's passenger, 34-year-old Gregory K. Mason, was charged with public intoxication and assault. Both are from Jonesborough.
Contract mower Bobby Johnson of Cleveland, Tenn., said he topped a hill on Opie Arnold Road Monday to find a blue Nissan pickup truck headed straight for his tractor. He lost control in trying to stop the machine and it rolled onto its side. Johnson said a 20-ounch can of Keystone beer was thrown at him from the truck cab.
A deputy found the suspects nearby and arrested them.
