UTICA, Mich. (CNN) - A Michigan man suspected of driving drunk was pulled over while riding a stolen, motorized wheelchair.
Utica police caught 55-year-old Raymound Kulma going on a drunken joyride on James Konkel's wheelchair.
The arrest was made near a Utica senior living complex where Konkel and Kulma got into an argument before the 55-year-old stole Konkel’s wheelchair.
“I left it out there thinking no one would take someone's chair,” Konkel said. “Yeah, I was shocked.”
Utica Police Chief Faber said Kulma wasn't just drunk, he was really drunk.
“Mr. Kulma was three times the legal limit,” Faber said. “He didn't pass any of the sobriety tests that he was given.”
But this wasn't Kulma’s first offense, and his driving record proves it.
This was his seventh operating while under the influence charge, some dating back to 1984.
Kulma's license was suspended four times, revoked twice, and he hasn't had a valid license since 1993.
“I think he needs to be locked up for a little while. Maybe it will teach him a lesson,” Konkel said.

While the worst of any natural disaster clearly comes during the disaster itself, the aftermath is often equally difficult to deal with.
