Got to give the guy an A for ingenuity on this one. But then the Darwin award for driving drunk.
I gotta get one. I’d love to mow the lawn in one of those!
In general, I understand and approve of DUI laws. Drunks in motor vehicles pose an immediate danger to ordinary citizens. What possible purpose is served by prosecuting this guy though? Has there been a series of La-Z-Boy v. pedestrian collisions where the pedestrian was injured by the impact from a 3 mph easy chair? Or is this just revenue generation for a bunch of losers who would rather hassle a harmless guy with a sense of humor than go after real criminals who do pose a danger to society?
Dude! I want one of those! Does it come with TV and a remote? LOL
I guess he should have made it a loveseat so he could have a designated driver - otherwise it seemed like a good plan...

Doesn’t surprise me out of a state that put Al Franken in the U.S. Senate.
