Police Auction Motorized Recliner on eBay

Have you dreamed of owning the perfect chair? You know, the kind of chair that you don't necessarily sit in because the furniture more accepts you into its loving embrace? And comfort aside, it also holds your beer and takes you out on the open road with the help of a lawnmower engine? Well, here's your chance.

Police in Minnesota are selling a modified recliner after the owner was convicted of DUI. The chair was previously listed on eBay as motorized La-Z-Boy. However, the Proctor police department was forced to repost the item on the online auctioneering site because it wasn't actually a La-Z-Boy-brand chair. Now labeled "the DWI Chair" the modified recliner is back up on eBay and bids are hitting $7,700.

Proceeds will be split between the state of Minnesota, the local victims' advocacy fund, the prosecuting attorney's office and the police department. However, all involved (apart from the buyer, I guess) are probably pretty annoyed that the item had to be pulled and reposted. The bidding on the first posting was well over $40,000.
