DUI On a Motorized Bar Stool Not an April Fool's Joke

A motorized barstool! This beats the story about the guy getting a DUI on a lawnmower last year. Or that Florida law which allows you to get a DUI on a bicycle.

Think about it. A motorized bar stool. Fly it to the moon.

Brilliant! The proud owner, Kile Wygle, said it can go 38 mph!

Luckily for him, he was "only" going 20 mph when he crashed. He did not get a ticket for speeding.

Unluckily, he was busted for "driving" under the influence (and with a suspended license!). And, as reported by News Talk 610 WTVN:

Wygle was treated for minor injuries at Licking Memorial Hospital where he joked with Trotter about drinking 15 beers before the crash. He refused the blood-alcohol test.

Ohio law prohibits anyone from operating a motorized vehicle while under the influence of drugs or alcohol. The law excludes wheelchairs and mobility scooters. To the slammer he went, American ingenuity notwithstanding. Probably be in the Hard Rock or on E Bay next week. Will help pay for the guy's lawyer.
