DUI on a motorized bar stool

Although this story involves four wheels and not two, it’s too good to pass up. Apparently this guy was too drunk to walk after consuming “at least” 15 beers at the local tavern, so instead decided to ride home on his motorized bar stool. Or maybe not, as he’s now saying that his head hurt so much after the crash that he went home and drank 1/2 a bottle of whisky before the cops showed up.
Regardless of his state of intoxication, he crashed en route while trying to make a turn at about 20 mph, injuring himself and triggering a 911 call.
Kile Wygle was charged with DUI and driving with a suspended license. The barstool was towed away and is now apparently in hiding.

  1. Was this mr. Bean at it again?
    if so where is the furniture???

  2. LOL

    I'm now looking for an old lawnmower and a bar stool.

    Junkyard down the road should have most of what I need I expect - as soon as the melting snow exposes the piles of miscellaneous metal rubbish.

  3. Sure does. But now I find that bar stool racing is a big deal in some parts of the US. For guys who can't afford Ferrari's I guess.

  4. Interesting stuff, check out the wide range of Bar Stool from

  5. Ross -

    Will keep that in mind once I have a chassis, but I'm not sure any self-respecting bar stool racer would actually buy a new stool. Old, abused, and ugly seems to be the style.

  6. need info
