Officials in Ohio will have to try again to sell a motorized bar stool from an unusual drunken driving case.

The child support agency in central Ohio's Licking County says the winning bidder in an eBay auction did not come through with payment for the bar stool crashed by Kile Wygle in March.

Wygle was arrested and charged with driving under the influence.

The county wants to sell the contraption to pay child support owed by Wygle. A high bid of $1,125 was reached in the eBay auction that ended Dec. 13.

Because the online auction didn't work, child support agency director Elizabeth Winegar says a live auction will be held next month in Newark, the county seat.

Wygle pleaded guilty in the drunken driving case and served three days in a driver education program.
