Man arrested for crashing bar stool

15.08 | 5 April 2009 |

A US man has been arrested and charged with drink driving after he crashed a motorised bar stool. The 28-year-old man invented and created the bar stool which he says can reach speeds of 38mph.

Police reports said he rolled the Frankenstein-esque lawnmower and bar stool combination on his way home from the pub in Newark, Ohio.

He allegedly admitted to drinking about 15 beers when interviewed by police at hospital but insisted that was after the accident. “I was riding bar stool and I wrecked. I wasn’t drinking when I wrecked, I drank afterward because my head hurt," he told WCLT Radio.

The man was issued a citation for operating a vehicle while intoxicated and driving under suspension. He has pleaded not guilty at an initial hearing.
