    MN La-Z-Boy DWI chair sold at auction

    PROCTOR, Minn. - A motorized lounge chair seized in a Minnesota DWI case has been auctioned off for a third time.
    A Duluth area resident placed the winning $3,700 bid Tuesday night.
    Bart Kyte, sales manager for the business that organized the sale, would not disclose the top bidder's name. Kyte says 15 people took part in the auction at Do-Bid.com.
    Proceeds go to the Proctor Police Department, which seized the novelty chair in August 2008 after its former owner drove it into a parked car. He pleaded guilty to drunken driving.

    The ORIGINAL story:


    A northern Minnesota man has pleaded guilty to driving his motorized lounge chair while drunk.

    A criminal complaint says 62-year-old Dennis LeRoy Anderson told police he was operating his customized La-Z-Boy and "that he was coming from the Keyboard Lounge after consuming approximately eight or nine beers since about 2 p.m. that day."

    Keyboard Lounge owner Roger Raymond says Anderson was not served at his Proctor bar and had not entered it. Anderson's attorney, David Keegan, did not return calls for comment Thursday.

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

    And here is a picture of the chair. I say it's pretty badass.

    Looks like it should be sitting in front of Adam West's TV.
