I usually don’t post things of this nature, but it’s too damn awesome to keep to myself.
This is Dennis LeRoy Anderson. He’s a resident of Proctor, MN and at the age of 61, may have accomplished one of the most hilarious things I’ve heard of yet.

We have a fascination with small town drunks such as these. Much like the Merrill woman who always rode her horse to the bar because he knew the way home when she was toasted, Dennis LeRoy Anderson found a way to conquer adversity and get his drunk on.

You see, after hanging out at the Keyboard Lounge on August 31, an extremely drunk Anderson drove his La-Z-Boy into a parked car in the Keyboard Lounge’s lot. Here’s an excerpt from the story, posted in the Minneapolis Star and Tribune:

“Anderson admitted to police that he had been drinking at home, was leaving the bar and had drunk eight or nine beers that day before getting on the La-Z-Boy and crashing it into a Dodge Intrepid parked outside, Foucault said. Anderson was treated for minor injuries and given a field sobriety test, even though he pleaded several times with the officer to ‘give him a break,’ according to the police report.

‘He failed everything,’ Foucault said, which led to Anderson’s arrest and seizure of the chair. The officer on the scene checked Anderson’s driver’s license and determined that it had been revoked because of a previous drunken-driving conviction, according to police.”

That’s right, you read all that correctly. DROVE his La-Z-Boy. Bad. Ass. Check it out:
You’ve got to admire a man that can, after driving a motorized CHAIR into a parked car, get up and ask the cop to “give me a break”. And then proceed to “fail everything”. Classic.

Here’s a quote:

“Deputy Police Chief Troy Foucault said Thursday that the chair is “quite decked out.” Along with the stereo and cup holders, it is driven by a converted gasoline-powered lawnmower, and has a steering wheel, headlights and a power antenna.

Foucault estimated that the La-Z-Boy can top out at 15 to 20 miles per hour. A National Hot Rod Association sticker adorns the headrest.”

For those interested, as I am, it looks like the decked out Chair of Awesome is in high demand. So if you’re interested, may I advise you to get on the phone to the Proctor Police Department as soon as possible.

I’m going to have to say that if we ever institute a Drunk of the Year on this site, we can safely declare Dennis LeRoy Anderson this years WINNER!

    That guy totally has something going for him if he can, while drunk probably most waking hours, still build a Chair of Awesome as awesome as that. How did he do it? When I’m drunk all I want to do is party with friends or veg out.

    This must be a weird Minnesota thing. My officemate totally built himself a motorized recliner a year or two ago, and I think his friend did too. When I originally read this article in the paper, I seriously thought it might have been him!
