Man Gets DUI on La-Z-Boy-Mobile

10/22/2009 3:29 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

How lazy do you gotta be to get a DUI without ever getting off your La-Z-Boy???

Dennis LeRoy
A 61-year-old dude named Dennis LeRoy was just sentenced to 180 days in jail after cops say he got wasted at a Minnesota bar last year and tried to drive home on his suped-up piece of living room furniture.

The La-Z-booze-mobile was equipped with a cup-holder, radio, headlight and a National Hot Rod Association sticker. It was powered by a converted lawn-mower.

Cops say on August 31,2008, LeRoy pounded around 8 or 9 beers, left the bar, mounted his chair-mobile -- which is capable of speeds up to 20 MPH -- and crashed into a "real car" on the way back to his home.

LeRoy was given field sobriety tests ... but cops say he "failed everything."

Celebrity DUI'sThe La-Z-Boy driver can avoid jail time if he completes two years of supervised probation -- which includes completing a chemical dependency program, random testing and 30 days of electronic monitoring.

That's a BIT of an excessive sentence! People do much worse while they're perfectly sober and capable of making good decisions and they are punished much less harshly, if at all.

If a 61-year-old dude IS, THEN BE!!! BUT, named of Dennis LeRoy after cops, it is Dennis Leroy who RETURNS THEIR LEGACY!!! It is EVIDENCE in reports BY police NOT TOUCHED BY INDIGENOUS WILDLIFE!!! Say he got wasted??? Well, get you story straight, TMZ!!! At a Minnesota its a bar's year last year, SO TRY, or your story IS a suped-up piece!!!!
IT'S REGATA!!
Lazy-boys, cup-holders, radios, headlights and a sticker is all well and good, BUT POWERED BY A CONVERTED LAWNMOWER???!!!
TMZ NEVER HEARD OF THAT!!!! YOUR REPORTING IS A MISTAKE!!! MISTAKES ARE WHAT YOU DO TMZ!!!
STIGATA!!!
LeRoy "pounded" (HAHAHAHA WHAT ARE TALKING TMZ; YOU MAKE THIS THING UP!!) If this is storied then just say, but if not then DO!! 8 or 9 beers IS a beer, but of what (a beer-of is a "beer~non-grata.") The left of a bar is nearest, BUT OF A RUST ON A BLADE!!! Mounted his chair-mobile is the Tazmanian Devil and the Tweety Bird (but TMZ knows not not of Tweety! I REMEMBER!! HAHAHAHAH!!)
If vans speed up to 20 MPH and crash into a "real car" then what of ordinary "real car."
Extraordinary "real cars?" TMZ, YOU INSANE THIS!!!
ITS CHEETAH CHIBATA!!!!

I live miles from where this happened. The cops forfeited the chair which means it is going to be sold at auction. Any takers???
