    Can you beat .602 BAC?

    It's a case that has some police shocked. A LaPorte man died last weekend after drinking and driving. The man's blood alcohol level was higher than most officials have ever seen, .602.
    28-year old Michael Garner's pick-up truck collided with an Amtrak train on County Road 500 in Pinola. That's just west of LaPorte. Over the phone, Garner's father tells Newscenter 16 that his son was apparently drinking at home that night. The family learned of their son's death the morning after it happened. They declined to say much more about the incident.
    John Sullivan, LaPorte County Chief Deputy Coroner, says he ran Garner's blood alcohol level a couple of times because he couldn't believe the numbers. Police say Garner drove at least seven miles, through snowy weather, before crashing into the Amtrak passenger train. Officials say the train tried to stop, but couldn't with such little notice. Fortunately, no one on that train was injured in this accident.
    Sullivan says he's surprised Garner didn't succumb to acute alcohol poisoning before getting behind the wheel. He says this should be a lesson to everyone about the extreme dangers of mixing alcohol and the road. “It's the highest one I've ever recorded. At the hospital lab, they also said they couldn't recall one that high. Anywhere from .3 on up on the blood alcohol percentage, it changes your ability to react, your reasoning and just your general ability to function,” says Sullivan.
    “I’ve seen them high, but never in the 6's, several in the 5's, but over 40 years-- this is the highest one I recall hearing or seeing,” says LaPorte County Sheriff Mike Mollenhauer.
    Garner does have a history with drinking and driving. He was charged with an OWI in 1999. In 2001, he was also charged twice for OWI. During one of those stops, he was also charged with driving on a suspended license.

    Uh you didn't read the whole thing.. he got greased by an Amtrak trying to drive around the gates. Turns out all that booze hampers your judgment. Save the $1.00 quickpick.

    Yep. .90

    Drunk Latvian had twice lethal alcohol level
    Dec 20, 2005 1:00 PM RIGA (Reuters) - A drunk Latvian had a blood-alcohol content more than 17 times the legal driving limit in the Baltic state when he was run over and killed, police said on Tuesday.
    The 50-year-old unnamed pedestrian, who also had more than twice the alcohol level considered lethal for most humans, was lying drunk on the road near his home in a remote part of eastern Latvia in the early hours.
    Police said the man had probably been drinking home-made alcohol for several days because of the impossibility of reaching his blood-alcohol level of 0.9 percent in just a day.
    They said the man was alive when he was run over by a car, creating a probable although unenviable record for alcohol consumption in hard-drinking Latvia.
    "The cause of death has been marked down as a road accident, although the alcohol level would most likely have killed him anyway," said state police spokeswoman Kristine Mezaraupe.
    Latvia, an ex-Soviet state that is still one of the poorest in the European Union, has a problem with heavy drinking, especially among men who have an average life expectancy of 66 years compared with 77 years for women. (Additional reporting, David Mardiste in Tallinn)

    Unreal!
    YEAH, IM THE BERRIES, AND CHERRIES IN YOUR REAR VIEW MIRROR.

    Handle every stressful situation like a dog.
    Eat it, Play with it, or piss on it, and walk away!

    As smart as man is, we haven't been able to invent a machine that can smell drugs or tell us where a person has walked,” Dogs are sophisticated investigative tools!

    The highest I ever saw was a .41. He was able to communicate and walk but was not doing a real spiffy job of driving. We retested him ever 15 minutes until we were certain his BAC was not increasing.
