Cruzin' Cooler Operator Gets Charged With DWI

We first wrote about the Cruzin Cooler, literally a motorised cooler scooter, here on Giz way back in 2006. Frankly, we're kind of baffled today that it took more than two years for the thing to log its first DWI arrest. First of all, yes, the Cruzin Cooler counts as a vehicle, and that is why Whitehall, NY resident Leslie J. "Bomber" Marr, 57, faces felony DWI and aggravated unlicensed operation of a motor vehicle charges, for swerving and driving on the sidewalk. The cooler contained 14 beers, but Washington County DA Kevin Kortright wasn't impressed. "They tell us he's been riding around town on that cooler for years," Kortright said, completely serious. "You can't cruise around on your cooler if you're intoxicated." Indeed. [PostStar]


    Are they for sale where can i get one?
    they're awesome great invention

    hey! where can i get those from?

    They are so cool!

    he shouldn't have been charged.
    and yes, he has been riding that thing for years, you'd see him and be like "there goes bomber, cruisin' along."
    he's never harmed anyone, and personally, i think that was safer for him than walking.
    he always stayed on the sidewalk.
    i'm scared one day, he'll accidentally walk into the road.
