City of Proctor officials are hoping the third time is the charm as they try to auction off the now famous motorized DWI chair.

Bidding opened Wednesday, and Police Chief Walker Wobig said today that bidding is up to $1,300 for the motorized, drivable chair that made international headlines after police arrested its owner for operating the chair on a roadway while intoxicated.

Bidding on eBay reached $43,500 at one point, but the auction was suspended. Another effort hit $410,000, but the winning bidder opted not to purchase the chair after all.

"Hopefully the third time is a charm and the chair will be sold," said Linnea Wiita, police secretary who has been handling the phone calls.

Interested buyers can go to www.Do-Bid.com or stop by the Oberfoell Auction site at 5350 Miller Trunk Hwy. in Hermantown. Bidding closes April 30.
