Bidding for Motorized, DWI La-Z-Boy Tops $40,000 (NOW $73,000)

Hey, sports fans, we’ve got your dream ride right here: A motorized La-Z-Boy up for auction on eBay.

How much would you pay for a sweet ride like this? Try $40,000—or more!

The chair, which apparently can go up to 40 miles per hour and even pop wheelies, was confiscated by police in northern Minnesota (yah) after its owner was arrested for driving drunk in the vehicle last year.

Dennis LeRoy Anderson, 47, pleaded guilty to the charge last month, admitting to police that he drove the vehicle to a bar and had eight or nine beers before crashing the chair into a parked car on his way home. Apparently, he was, uh, giving a female patron a ride on the chair when he lost control and they were both tossed off the vehicle.

“It did a wheelie and I flipped off the back in the middle of the street—and he fell off—the chair went running into the parked car,” Tammy Verrill told the AP.
