La-Z-Boy-Mobile Lost in Tragic Custody Battle

10/30/2009 6:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Like a babe being ripped from the arms of its loving mother, the man who got a DUI on a converted La-Z-Boy is now being separated from his cherished creation.

La-Z-Boy-Mobile Lost in Tragic Custody Battle

Dennis LeRoy's La-Z-Boy-Mobile is being sold out from under him on eBay by cops in Proctor, Minnesota -- a punishment for LeRoy getting his second DUI while riding the incredible contraption last year.

But all is not lost ... in exchange for removing the chair from the possession of its drunken master, LeRoy will get one of the DUIs taken off his record.

Somewhere, LeRoy is probably listening to "There's a Tear in My Beer" by Hank Williams.

A police auction?? Can't wait to put some fake bids on that one. I'm tipping the police will be very excited with their final price of over $1,000,000

It's all right. After all, it is in Minnesota, home of democrat Franken and the democrat acorn election fraud winners. However, it still sounds illegal to me. If it were ANYONE other than attorney general HOLDER, likely there would be some federal intervention in this confiscation and sale of private property.
Number 5 can go suck an acorn egg.....raw and get salmonella I hope, for the stupid unrelated comment

Only the court can confiscate a vehicle, and the owner has a right to appeal the decision.
