Man on motorized wheelchair given DUI citation

Posted:

CONYERS, Ga. (AP) -- A Conyers man has been accused of DUI and public drunkenness while operating a motorized wheelchair inside a grocery store.
   
Multiple media outlets are reporting that 48-year-old Danny W. Mitchell was cited Friday at a Kroger supermarket.
   
According to an incident report, Conyers police who were called to the scene found a disheveled Mitchell backing into the building and driving over plants. Mitchell was cited after he submitted to a breath test. The results of the test were redacted from the incident report.
   
Police say Mitchell told officers that he had taken the anti-anxiety medication Valium, the anti-depressant trazadone and had drunk a pint of alcohol.
   
Mitchell told WSB-TV on Tuesday that he can barely walk and was at the grocery store Friday to get a prescription filled.
