Man Charged With DUI For Driving Motorized Cooler, Driving a motor cooler of beer with an Australian man got off the road for ten months. Chris Petrie, 23, of Queensland, was captured on the cruise cooler in motion three times the legal limit of alcohol in his body, according to Reuters. The refrigerator, which can carry 48 beers, was mounted on a frame and powered by a motor.
Petrie said he bought the vehicle through the Internet and 630 and gathered in a friend’s house before Petrie decided to take home, according to a local television channel.
“At the time it was built, it was quite late, so we thought we’d go for a little test,” he told Network Ten. Petrie was captured on the road and charged with drunk driving and driving without a license.
In court, the judge asked if the cooler is fully loaded and was told it was full of rum and Coca-Cola in cans, Network Ten said.
When it comes to the combination of alcohol and ingenuity of the car, the Australians are lagging behind the Americans. Two years ago, a man of Newark, Ohio, was caught driving a motorized bar stool he built in his garage, which had a maximum speed of 38 miles per hour. Wygle Kile, 28, told police he built the device with a lawnmower engine and had consumed 15 beers before hitting it.
Earlier that year, Dennis Anderson, 62, of Proctor, Minnesota, was caught driving a motor of La-Z-Boy, while more than three times above the limit. His machine was powered by a lawn mower engine horsepower Kohler eight and had a sound, lighting, incorporates a cup holder and a “Hell Yeah It’s fast” sticker, according to thesmokinggun.com.
