The bidding on eBay topped out at more than $1,000 for a motorized bar stool that an Ohio man rode right into an arrest for drunken driving.

The online auction ended Sunday night with a winning bid of $1,125 for the contraption Kile Wygle crashed in March in the central Ohio city of Newark. He was charged with driving under the influence, later pleaded guilty and served three days in a driver education program.

The bar stool was listed on eBay by the county, which had seized it and planned to use the sale proceeds toward back child support owed by Wygle.

The winner will have to pick up the bar stool in person in Licking County. The auction page specified that it would not be shipped.
