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.

I would sue Lazy-Boy. I would sue them for making a chair capable for being mobile enough to get a DUI.

Did they write him for operating an unregistered, uninsured and ill-equipped vehicle? No lights, no seat belt? No window glass or eye protection? I wonder if there is a law in that state that would support the assertion that the chair is a conveyance within the authority of the DUI statute, If so, then all the above mentioned charges should follow. If not then perhaps only "drunk in public" should be charged. Is the man handicapped? If so, then his chair is the only ambulatory means available to him and he should be treated as if he were walking, not driving. Did he bring the chair into the bar or was it parked outside? And, what about the a hole that parked in the chair lane?
