A drunk 64-year-old Australian man was found asleep on a highway in northern Australia in his motorized wheelchair. The police charged him with drunk driving. Wheeling under the influence? I’ve heard of biking under the influence but only here in the drunkie town that is Chico, Cali.
Police officers saw the man slumped over himself in his wheelchair at 10 a.m. on Friday morning. He must have started early. He was sitting on an exit lane and cars were swerving around him. He was breathalized and blew a 0.301, more than six times over the legal driving limit. He must have started REALLY early. Understandable because the man had to make a nine mile trip to a buddy’s house.
For your info: other classes of vehicles subject to drunk driving laws include horses, bicycles and motorized wheelchairs. So I guess stick with a hand operated wheelchair and get shitfaced.
