| by Emily Smith

Ohio man Donald Law was charged with disorderly conduct after deputies found him operating a motorized wheelchair under the influence of alcohol.

Police footage of the event was obtained by The Associated Press.

Deleware County sheriff’s deputies found Law around 10:30 p.m. on Friday when someone reported a possible drunken driver.

The 44-year-old was about a mile from his home when police found him. When police asked Law to get out of the road, because his wheelchair didn’t have reflectors or lights, he refused.

Law was charged with a misdemeanor for disorderly conduct. He was eventually given a ride home by someone else, police reported.
