    RI cops arrest man with .491 blood alcohol level

    RI cops arrest man with .491 blood alcohol level - Salon.com

    State Police arrested a man early Tuesday whose blood alcohol level allegedly was .491 more than six times the legal limit which they believe is the highest ever recorded in Rhode Island for someone who wasn't dead.
    I would like to know how he managed to get behind the wheel... Wow.

    He should not be alive. dinger is right. That's a man who's probably been drunk every day for years.

    Nowadays "Was he from Ames" is the more appropriate question. Whenever I party in Iowa City, State kids drink hawks under the table...

    Re: RI cops arrest man with .491 blood alcohol level

    Reading this thread made me think about what was the highest Blood Alcohol level ever recorded. I'm not sure if it's true but I did come across this:
    Bulgarian's blood-alcohol level astounds doctors

    Last Updated: Tuesday, January 4, 2005 | 3:07 PM ET

    CBC News



    Bulgarian doctors tested a man's blood-alcohol level five times before accepting it was 0.914 nearly twice the amount considered to be life-threatening. The 67-year-old man landed in hospital on Dec. 20 after a car knocked him off his feet in the southern Bulgarian city of Plovdiv, police and doctors said Tuesday.
    A breath test indicated blood-alcohol levels so high that police thought their equipment was broken, because the man remained conscious and talked with them.
    The head of Plovdiv police, Col. Angel Rangelov, said five separate lab tests taken the same day confirmed the man's blood-alcohol level of 0.914.
    A blood-alcohol level of 0.55 is considered potentially fatal.
    In comparison, the Bulgarian man's level was more than 11 times higher than the legal blood-alcohol limit for drivers in Canada, which is 0.08.
    The man, who has not been identified, was reported to be in stable condition after being treated for head injuries.
