HARRISON, N.J. (AP) — Police say a New Jersey man who was drunk stole a bulldozer in order to get a ride home.

Police say 30-year-old Christopher Russell left behind a path of destruction as he tried to maneuver the bulldozer through West Hudson Park. The bulldozer leveled signs, three benches, a tree, a drinking fountain, and left a maze of tracks in the grass.

Harrison Police Capt. Mike Green told the Jersey Journal (http://bit.ly/1yOTkUS ) that Russell told officers he was cold and was trying to ride home to Newark.

Russell was charged with driving while intoxicated, criminal mischief, leaving the scene of an accident and theft of the bulldozer.
