In Proctor, Minnesota, USA, police auctioned off a motorized reclining chair they confiscated from a man who was "driving" it while intoxicated. The "DWI Chair", as it's become known, was first advertised a a well-known brand and attracted online bids of up to $43,000. When it was discovered it wasn't actually manufactured by the brand stated, it was reposted as the "DWI Chair", and it eventually netted a price of about $10,000. Police Chief Walter Wobig says the recliner is powered by a lawnmower engine and comes equpped with a stereo, cup holders and lights. Its original owner pled guilty to driving while intoxicated.
