MASON CITY — Shades of “Caddyshack.”

Mason City police received a call at 7:05 a.m. Tuesday to a report that a man was pushing a lawn mower through neighbors’ yards, leaving lines and marks, according to the department’s daily call log.

When police located the man at his residence in the 200 block of South Monroe Avenue, he told police he was using the mower to chase a gopher.

The officer was apparently unimpressed: He told the subject to stay in his home until he was sober.
