Motorised La-Z-Boy On eBay, Slightly Damaged Due To DWI

Remember the guy who got a DWI after crashing his motorised La-Z-Boy? While he's serving a 180-day jail sentence, the City of Proctor, Minnesota is putting his tricked out chair onto eBay, "Hell yeah, it's fast" bumper sticker and all.

During Dennis LeRoy Anderson's trial, the chair was considered a vehicle for legal purposes and because of that it ended up as city property. Since there didn't seem to be a use for it, it went onto the auction block:

Known as the world famous DWI motorised La-Z-Boy style Chair, year built unknown. This is a unique vehicle located in Proctor Minnesota. The vehicle has been obtained from a DWI forfeiture and has not been restored. Engine: Briggs and Stratton Model # 19070 Type: 5641 with electric start. Transmission type unknown and is sloppy. The vehicle has front lights, rear tag light, radio, cup holder, rear roll bars and other custom options, missing the seat cushion. Curb weight of vehicle is unknown, length is 52" and width is 45". This is a great parade vehicle or a terrific business draw. Be the only one in town with a unique vehicle like this. This is not a street legal vehicle.

That's a lot of customisation, but for the current going price of $US3250 someone oughta at least replace the missing cushion or tune up the transmission. Or at least toss in a few extra stickers, if nothing. [eBay via Wired]
