  • Man pleads guilty to DWI in motorized La-Z-Boy


    From: http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/us_lounge_chair_dwi

    A Minnesota man has pleaded guilty to driving his motorized La-Z-Boy chair while drunk. A criminal complaint says 62-year-old Dennis LeRoy Anderson told police he left a bar in the northern Minnesota town of Proctor on his chair after drinking eight or nine beers.

    Prosecutors say Anderson's blood alcohol content was 0.29, more than three times the legal limit, when he crashed into a parked vehicle in August 2008. He was not seriously injured.

    Police said the chair was powered by a converted lawnmower and had a stereo and cup holders.

    Sixth Judicial District Judge Heather Sweetland stayed 180 days of jail time Monday and ordered two years of probation for Anderson. His attorney, David Keegan, did not immediately return a call for comment.
    I don't know why, but the fact his middle name was "LeRoy" just made me chuckle a little.

          I'd pull him over just to impound the chair.

            HA!

            I wonder why his mechanical engineering intelligence used to create this chair was higher than his use of common sense not drink and ride.

                Sorry to sound like a criminal coddler here, but I happen to think that these cases are blown out of proportion. DUI is, to me, a serious offense because of the damage that could be inflicted if in one were to get in an accident. So all of these DUI charges for riding a bike, lawnmower, motorized chair seem too overboard. Whats next, DUI for a wino coasting on his shopping cart? Skateboard? Roller skates?

                  He has to score top marks for ingenuity. I don't sympathise with his plight though. P155y drivers get all they deserve.
                  If at first you don't succeed, remove all evidence of your attempt.

                    I see a design flaw, a sudden stop could do some serious damage to the family heirlooms.

                      Interesting statistic.

                      You are 6 times more likely to be killed or injured walking home drunk than you are driving home drunk.

                      Heard that last night on Freakanomics
                      Though their numbers are many, as the grass upon the field, we will count them at the end of the day.

                        Nope, it has to be powered by an engine or motor.

                          Well what about the bicycle DUIs? Or is it a lesser offense? Would the kinds with the little electric motor qualify?
