    Man Charged with Shooting His Own Lawnmower

    A man from Milwaukee is facing criminal charges after he solved a problem with his lawnmower by shooting it.

    According to a criminal complaint, on Wednesday Keith Walendowski got drunk early in the morning. He decided to mow his lawn on the 3500 block of South Austin Street in Milwaukee.

    He couldn't get the lawnmower to start. His solution? Prosecutors say Walendowski went to his basement and grabbed a sawed off shotgun, and he fired twice at the lawnmower.

    "I'll tell you the truth. I got p---ed because my lawn mower wouldn't start, so I got my shotgun and shot it," Walendowski said to an officer. "I can do that, it's my lawn mower and my yard, so I can shoot it if I want."

    If convicted, Walendowski faces up to six years and 90 days behind bars and fines of $11,000.

    A local lawnmower repairman tells the Journal Sentinel that Walendowski may have trouble fixing the mower noting that anything not factory recommended voids the warranty.

    Not the smartest thing to do if you live in the middle of suburbia which it sounds like he does.

    So I wonder if he got charged with illegallyt discharging a firearm, or a firearm violation because they say the shotgun was sawed off. The penalty sounds more like an illegal weapon charge.

    no reason they couldn't get him for both if the shotgun was too short.

    6 years for shooting your own property? had to have been in the city limits with an illegal gun.
