Drunk Driving Charge For Man On Motorized Bar Stool

Authorities in Ohio say a man has been charged with drunken driving after crashing his motorized bar stool.

Police in Newark, 30 miles east of Columbus, say when they responded to a report of a crash with injuries on March 4, they found a man who had wrecked a bar stool powered by a deconstructed lawn mower.

Twenty-eight-year Kile Wygle was hospitalized for minor injuries. Police say he was charged with operating a vehicle while intoxicated after he told an officer at the hospital that he had consumed 15 beers. Wygle told police his motorized bar stool can go up to 38 mph.

Wygle has pleaded not guilty and has requested a jury trial.

    You have to admire his sense of humor. However, if my name was Kile Wygle (Wiggle?), I'd drink too.

    If it operates under its own power, legally its considered a vehicle. It is no different than had he been riding a moped or a tractor trailer, ‘cept a whole lot funnier.
