Boulder, Colo. (AP) A Boulder man is facing multiple charges including drunken driving and careless driving after allegedly stealing a street sweeper and taking it on a joy ride.

Twenty-nine-year-old Jeffrey Strom is also accused of aggravated motor-vehicle theft following Monday's incident.

Street cleaner Callie Hayden told police she parked at a Boulder intersection and started walking away when she turned around and found the machine gone.

The 25-year-old says she quickly turned around and ran after the sweeper, and watched as the driver did a few ``donuts'' in the street.

Police eventually caught up with Strom.

He reportedly admitted to officers that he drove the sweeper, but said he didn't plan on stealing it.
