Ohio man arrested for drunken driving on barstool

NEWARK, Ohio Authorities in Ohio say the vehicle being used by a man charged with drunken driving was a motorized barstool.

Police in Newark, 30 miles east of Columbus, say when they responded to a report of a crash with injuries on March 4, they found a man who had wrecked what appeared to be a barstool sitting atop a deconstructed lawn mower.

Twenty-eight-year Kile Wygle was hospitalized for minor injuries. Police say he was charged with operating a vehicle while intoxicated after he told an officer at the hospital that he had consumed 15 beers. A police report says Wygle also claimed his motorized barstool could go up to 38 mph.

Wygle has since pleaded not guilty and has requested a jury trial.

A simple online search turns up several Web sites devoted to barstool racing.
