    Default Man pleads guilty to drunk driving in chair

    A Minnesota man has pleaded guilty to driving his motorised La-Z-Boy chair while drunk.

    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, cup holders and different power levels.

    Sixth Judicial District Judge Heather Sweetland stayed 180 days of jail time on Monday and ordered two years of probation for Anderson, according to the Duluth News Tribune newspaper.

    Anderson had to forfeit his motorised chair to police, who plan to auction it with other forfeited items, Proctor Deputy Police Chief Troy Foucault told the paper.
