PROCTOR, Minn. -- A motorized recliner used by a man who pleaded guilty to driving it drunk has sold fore more than $10,000 on eBay -- much less than it was poised to make a few days ago.
A $43,000 bid was placed on Monday when the chair was listed as a motorized La-Z-Boy.
The Proctor Police Department reposted the item as the "DWI Chair."
The auction ended Thursday with a winning bid of $10,099.99.
Proceeds of the sale will benefit Proctor tax payers.
Police have said the chair is not street legal.
The chair, powered by a lawn mower engine, is equipped with a stereo, cup holders and lights.
The former owner, Dennis LeRoy Anderson, pleaded guilty last month to operating the chair while intoxicated.
His family is also auctioning on eBay an autographed photo of him riding the La-Z-Boy to help with his fees.
