Beer, Motorized Barstool Land Man In Trouble
RENEE MONTAGNE, host:
Good morning, I'm Renee Montagne.
A 28-year-old Ohio man was charged with driving under the influence after he crashed his barstool. The stool was perched atop a motor from a lawnmower, complete with steering wheel and was going about 20 miles an hour, he told police. Kile Wygle pleaded not guilty, but admitted he had, oh, 15 beers. He told a local TV reporter that he started drinking after he wrecked his bar stool.
And that's MORNING EDITION from NPR News. And it's not an April Fool's joke.
