The motorized La-Z-Boy lounge chair that Proctor, Minn., police seized after its owner hit a parked vehicle is going up for auction on eBay today. But the chair was not the only item related to the incident open for bidding.


The family of the chair's former owner will put an autographed photo of Dennis LeRoy Anderson riding the chair on eBay.

"All proceeds will go to Dennis to help him with his fees," said Tim Jorgensen, Anderson's son-in-law.
