Dennis LeRoy Anderson, 62, has pleaded guilty to driving his motorized La-Z-Boy chair while drunk. He told police he left a bar in the Minnesota town of Proctor on his La-Z-Boy after drinking eight or nine beers. Police said the chair was powered by a converted lawnmower and had a stereo and cup holders.

STEVE INSKEEP, host:

Good morning. I'm Steve Inskeep. A La-Z-Boy chair wasn't good enough for Dennis Anderson. The Proctor, Minnesota, man outfitted his chair with a stereo system, cup holders and a motor. He could drive it, which got him into trouble. That and the beer. He drank eight or nine before leaving a local bar in his chair. He crashed into a car. Reclining while intoxicated is not necessarily a crime, but police say driving a chair while intoxicated definitely is.

It's MORNING EDITION.
