Subsequent investigation revealed that the man had been operating the motorized barstool on Kelley Lane when he crashed it while trying to make a turn, the report states.
The man claimed the barstool could reach speeds of 38 mph on its five-horsepower engine but that he was traveling at about 20 mph when he crashed it at 5:40 p.m., according to Trotter’s report.

A DNA test has revealed that 'dad at 13' Alfie is NOT the father of baby Maisie.
The story caused a media storm last month when teenage mum Chantelle gave birth to the little girl and claimed that babyfaced Alfie was the daddy.
But six other teenagers from Eastbourne in England where the couple live then came forward to claim that THEY might be the baby's father.
