It's against the law to drink and drive. And as we've seen time and again, the police don't care if you're driving a Ferrari or a motorized scooter; over the limit means under arrest. There is now one more person in the world who knows this undeniable truth first-hand. Dennis LeRoy Anderson was convicted of Driving While Intoxicated after being caught piloting a La-Z-Boy that was modded with with lawn mower parts, a stereo and a cup holder. No word on what actually happened to be resting in that cup holder when the La-Z-Boy left the comforts of Anderson's living room that night.

Anderson was arrested in the northern Minnesota town of Proctor after he crashed his La-Z-Boy into a parked car. To the surprise of absolutely nobody, Anderson had a blood alcohol content of .29; over three times the legal limit. Sixth Judicial District Judge Heather Sweetland let Anderson off lightly, as she stayed the 180-day jail term in favor of two years probation. We're thinking the two years of probation pales in comparison to living the rest of one's life knowing that you were arrested for drinking and driving a recliner. Sad. Thanks for the tip, Mike!

      This is the funniest thing I've read today. Although he did get off easy.

      1) Driving an unregistered vehicle
      2) Proof of insurance
      3) seat belt

      This is the kind of story that helped make the interweb the warehouse of Epic Win it is today! How else would you ever hear the story of a guy getting nailed for DUI in a pimped-out recliner? LMFAO.

        Interweb? Epic win? LMFAO? Are you a mentally handicapped 14 year old? People like you spouting those stupid internet "catch phrases", should lose the ability to speak in public, And by that I mean that someone is going to punch you in the throat when they hear you talk.

        Go back to 4chan dumbass.

        What the hell is 4chan? No, I'm a 30 year old technical specialist with secure employment and a full head of hair. Here's another stupid catchphrase just for you, pal- STFU. If you're too stupid to recognize f**king sarcasm, then you should lose your ability to post to these message boards. Got it, dumbass?

      They also impounded his ride and it will be sold at police auction.
        • 5 Years Ago
        Nope. The police are going to use it for undercover raids with the blanket he was using as a seatbelt.

        Just an everyday La-Z-Boy chair rolling around....nothing suspicious.
