Default US Record drunk driving ??

http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20091231/...d_intoxication


Wed Dec 30, 11:00 pm ET

RAPID CITY, S.D. South Dakota authorities say a woman found passed out in a stolen delivery van earlier this month registered a blood alcohol content of .708 nearly nine times the legal limit and a possible record for the state.

Meade County State's Attorney Jesse Sondreal said Wednesday that 45-year-old Marguerite Engle was found slumped over the van's steering wheel along a highway on Dec. 1.

He says the highest blood alcohol content state chemists he spoke with could recall was a .56. The state's legal limit is .08.

Authorities say Engle missed an initial court hearing Dec. 15, but that they found her Monday in another stolen vehicle, and that she had been drinking.

She was being held on two counts of driving under the influence. It wasn't immediately clear if she was facing other charges.

Her attorney declined comment.

I guess we know where she's spending New Year's Eve... Hey, she might still get a kiss, though...

I demand this woman receive a visit from Guinness!

For some reason this doesn't come as a shock to me. One of my friends parents was given a BAL test, she was a .42 and I never would have guessed she wasn't sober. She was walking around fine, never slurred a word and had she asked, I would have let her borrow my car. The officer told us that anyone over .4 that he had seen before was dead.

In 1978 I blew a .40 after driving on up a curb destroying a plastic cow in front of a dairy. Two LASD deputies were parked behind the dairy, never saw me coming until the cow exploded.
Boy were they mean to me. I could barely stand.

For the record, I don't drink any more.

I also assume he meant a 0.40. But I did find this little bit interesting:

Quote:
To put this in perspective, a blood alcohol level of .40 is considered lethal to almost 50% of the population. The highest blood alcohol level ever recorded in the U.S. was last year when an Oregon woman was also found passed out in a vehicle registered an incredible .72 BAC.

Maybe he meant he blew a 5.0 to not get in trouble for the cow.

I would drink every day. I had quite the tolerance, or so I thought. Later in life as a cop in nevada I have seen .40 passed a few times.

Damn, the seventies were a blast. That DUI was deferred by a special California program for first time offenders. Times have changed.

Will she get a DUI? I've heard in Michigan if you are over .40 then you are no longer in control of what you do. This is probaly false, but a guy I know crashed a truck and blew a .42 and that is how I was told he got outta it.
