Man Arrested For DUI On Motorized La-Z-Boy Pleads Guilty

Comments (0)

A man from Minnesota who was arrested in 2008 for driving under the influence on a motorized La-Z-Boy lounge chair recently pleaded guilty to the DUI charge.


On August 31, 2008, 62-year-old Dennis Anderson was arrested after his chair collided with a parked car, according to the police report. His blood was tested, revealing his blood-alcohol content to have been 0.29 percent, more than three times the legal limit of 0.08 percent.


The customized vehicle is powered by an 8-horsepower Kohler lawnmower engine. It has a stereo, headlights, and a built-in cup holder. Anderson even decorated it with a “Hell Yeah It’s Fast” bumper sticker. However, what the vehicle didn’t have was a seat belt.


The motorized chair was controlled by a steering wheel that protruded from its seat cushion. The headrest bore the logo of the National Hot Rod Association.


After Anderson pleaded guilty to the DUI charge, he was ordered to serve 180 days in prison and pay a $2,000 fine. His jail term was stayed in lieu of his successful completion of a two-year supervised probation term.


The chair is to be sold via police auction.
