IT REMINDS ME OF A STORY MANY YEARS AGO WHEN COMEDIAN PETER COOK WAS IN FRONT OF THE BEAK ON DRINK DRIVING CHARGES AND ORDERED NOT TO DRIVE FOR A CERTAIN PERIOD. COOK ASKED THE JUDGE IF THAT INCLUDED POWER ASSISTED PUSH BIKES AND MOTORISED LAWNMOWERS.
THE BEAK CONFIRMED THAT IT DID.

Authorities in Ohio say a US man has been charged with drink driving after crashing his motorised bar stool.
Police in Newark, 30 miles east of Columbus, say when they responded to a report of a crash with injuries on March 4, they found a man who had wrecked a bar stool powered by a deconstructed lawn mower.
Kile Wygle, 28, went to hospital with minor injuries. Police say he was charged with operating a vehicle while intoxicated after he told an officer at the hospital that he had consumed 15 beers.
Wygle told police his motorised bar stool can go up to 38mph.
Wygle has pleaded not guilty and has requested a jury trial.
