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, Fox News reported.

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 a talk show host 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.

I think it's total BS when it's something that you can do on your own property. I was drinking a few beers mowing the other day and my neighbor said I could get a DUI.

LOL!

Kind of lame that they arrested him but I guess it's not a good idea to drive the thing on the street when boozing. If you're at a picnic driving the thing around a park or something, I can't imagine there's anybody cooler than you for miles around!

I can semi-see having a problem driving it in the street, but man, some laws are lame.

Yeah calling it a DWI is a little much. They just should have said look buddy that thing isn't street legal, we're going to have to ticket you. If you do it again we'll hit you with a DWI. That should have done the trick.

A DUI for that is stupid - he didn't pose the risk that DUI laws are designed to protect against. Public Intoxication, perhaps, but DUI is completely out of line.

Seriously, he might have caused someone to wreck if he's driving stupid on the road...

Still though, I agree that the thought of driving one of those tanked is awesome.

Yeah I mean hey, if you're gonna get busted for drinking drunk why not be sitting on a cooler full of booze?!

I love how it's got a padded seat. Pure genius.

AS crippling as a DUI is some changes need to be made to the law. IE the mowing your lawn, sleeping in the back seat of a running car, etc.

Well he was riding on public street and what if he swerved out when a car was passing forcing it into on coming trafic. I do agree DUI is a bit harsh and the cops should have tould him just to get that thing off the road. There's a guy who rides one of those things around the parking lot at Redskins home games.
