The moral of this story is to never, ever plead guilty.
Surprisingly, alcohol was involved.
From the New York Daily News:
Proctor Police Department
Dennis LeRoy Anderson, 62, pled guilty to driving his tricked-out La-Z-Boy while drunk.
At least he was in a comfy chair.
However, the 62-year-old crashed the La-Z-Boy into a parked car. He was not seriously injured, but police found that his blood alcohol level was 0.29, more than three times the legal limit.
Anderson admitted to drinking eight or nine beers, a criminal complaint stated.
As for the chair, which was powered by a lawnmower engine and tricked out with headlights, a stereo and a steering system, is going to be auctioned off by police at an undetermined date.
The Minnesota senior will serve two years probation.
