La-Z-Boy Driver: I Was Trying to Pop a Wheelie

10/23/2009 1:25 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

The dude who was arrested for drunk driving a motorized recliner says he wrecked his kick-ass ride because he was trying to pop a wheelie ... and the CHICK RIDING ON THE BACK OF THE La-Z-Boy threw off his balance!

Dennis LeRoy
We just got off the phone with 61-year-old Dennis LeRoy, who told us the only thing harder to do than pop a wheelie on a racing chair after slamming 8 beers is popping a wheelie on a racing chair with a chick on the back after slamming 8 beers.

The added weight must have thrown off LeRoy's already dicey equilibrium -- because the unfortunate passenger ended up getting tossed from the ride and LeRoy ended up slamming into a parked car ... which landed him in the slammer.

Don't forget, people ... tricks are for kids!

Too bad he didn't run over those constantly posting the same comments. And too bad there's no TMZ vid of the man in the 'vehicle'. Would be fun to see.
