Man Gets DWI After Riding Motorized Cooler



One New York man's Memorial Day fun ended when police pulled him over while he was driving his motorized cooler.Leslie J. "Bomber" Marr, 57, was charged with driving while intoxicated and aggravated unlicensed operation of a motor vehicle after the police saw him swerving on the street and driving on the sidewalk in his "Cruzin Cooler," Whitehall Police Chief Richard LaChapelle told the Post Star newspaper.

Marr's electric-powered cooler was filled with 14 beers and has room for 24 cans and ice.
Under New York state law, driving any motorized vehicle must be done without alcohol, including motorized coolers. In various states, other modes of transportation in which driving is prohibited while intoxicated include lawnmowers, boats, bicycles, golf carts, wheelchairs and horses.

The "Cruzin Cooler" Web site features talk show host Ellen Degeneres riding a cooler. The site praises the vehicle, saying it "combines two basic necessities of life, the ability to have cold food or a beverage handy along with the means to get somewhere without walking."

According to cruzincooler.com, the motor or electric-powered cooler can go up to 13 mph and has hitches to attach a wagon that can pull a 400-pound load on level surfaces.

    Those are the coolest coolers! Guess it's a good idea to check out local & state laws before drinking & driving your cooler! :-D

    Well, dern! They're just not letting anybody have any fun. Very cool cooler, though. Need one myself, although the two male people would commandeer it for sure.

    LMAO. Reminds me of when I was a PO and had a guy who got a DUI on a bike. I thought at least he was trying to be semi-responsible. That cooler could probably do some damage. I'm still crying...too funny.

    LOL Pit! I know for a fact you can't operate a wheelchair while drunk? Be there done that. ;)

    Chelle, Thanks! I'm looking at a few things here on my end to see if I can find the problem too.

    Billywarhol, they also made cooler wagons to pull behind so theres lots of room for the beer.
    We could just build a train of wagons. LOL!
