NEWARK, Ohio (AP) – If an Ohio man sells the motorized bar stool that got him arrested for drunken driving, a child support agency will get the money.

The Licking County Child Support Enforcement Agency filed a court petition after hearing an entertainment company was interested in buying Kile Wygle’s unusual vehicle. A judge agreed that if Wygle makes any profit from the stool, it should go toward back child support. Court records show he owes $37,000.

Wygle was charged with driving under the influence after he crashed his contraption in March. He pleaded guilty and spent three days in jail.

He calls the interest in his bar stool from child support officials “pretty goofy.” But he says they’re welcome to take it and sell it themselves.
