Newark, Ohio (AP) -- The motorized bar stool that got a central Ohio man arrested for drunken driving goes up for auction this week on Ebay.

Twenty-nine-year-old Kile Wygle was charged with driving under the influence after he crashed the contraption in Newark in March.

He pleaded guilty the following month and spent three days in jail.

A Licking County judge ruled in June that any profit from sale of the stool should go toward back child support.

At the time, Wygle owed about $37,000.

The county seized the barstool and plans to post it for auction on Thursday

County child support enforcement agency director Beth Winegar says the agency intervened after learning that Wygle hoped to sell the barstool to Ripley's Believe It Or Not.
