Creative Drunk

Gets DUI on

Motorized Bar Stool

3/31/2009 11:25 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Warning: It's best to cue the song "Dueling Banjos" before reading the following story:

Some MacGyver-esque drunkard in Ohio is facing DUI charges after crashing a bar stool he was driving -- HE WAS DRIVING!

motorized bar stool
Cops arrived to the scene around 5:41 PM on March 4, arrested the guy, and filed a police report ... here are the highlights ... it's classic.

"Unit #1 was heading west bound on Kelly Lane. Unit #1 attempted to turn around (180 degrees), and back down Kelly east bound. As Unit #1 began its turn, it rolled over and the operator was injured."

"Note: Unit #1 was a home made [sic] motor vehicle, a bar stool attached to a frame with a lawn mower attached."

"At this point I noticed that Mr. Wygle's eye's [SIC] were very blood shot and were glassy in appearance."

"I asked him what happened, Mr. Wygle stated, 'I wrecked my bar stool.'"

"I asked Mr. Wygle how much alcohol he had to drink, he said, 'a lot.'"


"I asked if the bar stool even ran and said, 'yes, it will go around 38 miles per hour.'"

Wygle, who has undoubtedly become a cult hero in frat houses across the country, pleaded not guilty and has requested a jury trial.

No word on how he plans on getting to court.

Mr. Wygle made up this ELABORATE story 'cuz, in reality, he was too EMBARRASSED to say this contraption is Pam Anderson's mobile HERPES pustule popper.

It's ridiculous to stop people and site them for riding something like that or a lawnmower or a bicycle while drunk.. you may hurt yourself but you aren't a danger to anyonw else! Geesh

Maybe if he had extended the wheel base on that bar stool buggy he wouldn't have crashed. Talk about top heavy.
