Rock-fuelled granddad reinvents the wheelchair

A retired IT systems engineer from Germany was arrested after he was found doing 40mph down his local high street in a super-powered wheelchair he had upgraded.

Guenther Eichmann, 54, told cops in Geseke, Germany, that he was a former engineer and had modified the wheelchair’s electric motor so it could go faster. This was the second time he had been stopped for speeding after a warning for breaking the limit. Eichmann was slapped with a £300 fine and his wreceiving heelchair was confiscated.

Rumours that police stormed Eichmann’s garage to find blueprints for a machine gun attachment, an ejector seat and a turbo boost remain unconfirmed.
