Dennis Anderson, 62, of Proctor, Minnesota is not exactly your typical DUI defendant. He pleaded guilty after being arrested while “driving” drunk. The vehicle in question was his modified La-Z-Boy recliner.
The Proctor Police Department report that Anderson had a blood alcohol level of three times the limit when he left a bar in Proctor in his La-Z-Boy, which has a radio, headlights, cup holders, and is powered by a lawn mower engine. Proving that women are always impressed with a tricked out ride, a woman jumped on the chair and Proctor lost control — running into a parking car. He had had eight or nine beers.
He has been sentenced to 180 days in the St. Louis County jail and fined $2000, plus court fees. However, However, the court will waive part of the fine and jail if he stay clean and off his La-Z-Boy on city streets.
What I do not get is why, if a La-Z-Boy is a vehicle for purposes of DUI (which seems a bit questionable), he was not charged with carrying excess passengers.
What is clear is that these wild cats wearing their snuggies and zipping around in their punked La-Z-Boys are a public menace and a threat to public decency. They would get the chair in Texas if they didn’t look forward to it and demand a clicker with their potassium chloride cocktail. This is why these wild cats stay out of Proctor where the officers are called Proctologists by the racing geriatric set.
