Man Pleads Guilty to DWI in Motorized La-Z-Boy

October 23, 2009

DULUTH, MN - A Minnesota man has pleaded guilty to driving his motorized La-Z-Boy chair while drunk, according to the Duluth News Tribune. 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, reported the Tribune.
