      Hey, I wanna drive the Zamboni
      Hey, I wanna drive the Zamboni
      Yes I do

      Now eer since I was young
      Its been my dream
      That I might drive the Zamboni machine
      I guess that I was just slick as could be
      And all the kids would look up to me

          From the article:

          People have been arrested in Minnesota for driving under the influence on everything from a souped-up motorized recliner to a farm tractor. State law says a DWI can result from driving any kind of a motorized vehicle, pretty much anywhere -- a forklift driver at work, a Bobcat driver plowing city sidewalks, a riding lawn mower in a yard

            The arena may be privately owned; but anywhere people are allowed to walk in off the street is considered public. A Walmart is privately owned but allows people in so it is considered a public place. I was charged with a DUI and could not operate any vehicle with a motor in public areas- not a motorized skateboard or golf cart on a course.

                Every state has different traffic laws but in Virginia, DUI falls under code 18.2 or criminal offense rather than a code 46.2 or traffic violation. So DUI can be charged if a motor vehicle is operated on private property.

                    The ones that still have me shaking my head are the Tuesday/Wednesday late morning DWIs......."seriously guy, its 11:17 in the morning".

                      Really? That's your concern? Not the fact the guy was hammered on the job and could have killed someone?

                        really, could have killed someone? no one was in danger.

                          What about the refs on the ice moving the nets, what about the fact that there were people in the stands and peewee teams waiting to get on the ice, other employees in zamboni room? The article says the coach was moving people at from the glass... It's not like this was an empty rink before a 10pm beer league game.

                          There's a huge potential of danger, he crashed into the boards, any number of things could have gone horribly wrong there.

                          Plus the slug was charged 3 times already...

                            That would be because someone stopped him before anyone was put in danger.

                            It's also the classic self defense of a lot of drunk drivers - "I didn't kill anyone, or even have an accident, why do I have to do XYZ to get my driver's license back?"
