Man had .491 BAC
PROVIDENCE, R.I. - State police say they arrested a man early Tuesday whose blood alcohol level was 0.491 percent — the highest ever recorded in Rhode Island for someone who wasn't dead.
Stanley Kobierowski was taken to a hospital, put in the detoxification unit and sedated, said Maj. Steven O'Donnell. He was arraigned Tuesday on charges of driving while intoxicated and resisting arrest, and he was released after promising to appear Friday at a court hearing.
"The person's lucky they survived," O'Donnell said. "There's no doubt he would have gotten killed or killed someone if he had continued on the route he was taking."
A phone listing for Kobierowski could not be found, and he did not have a lawyer in court Tuesday.
Kobierowski, 34, of North Providence, was arrested after he drove into a highway message board on Interstate 95 in Providence, O'Donnell said.
After police arrived, Kobierowski had trouble getting out of the car, then grabbed it and refused to move, forcing troopers to carry him to the breakdown lane before taking him back to their barracks, O'Donnell said.
A breath test showed blood alcohol readings of 0.489 percent, followed by 0.491, O'Donnell said, the highest readings state officials could remember for someone who didn't end up dead.
The legal limit in Rhode Island is 0.08. A level of 0.30 is classified as stupor, 0.4 is comatose and 0.5 is considered fatal, according to the health department.

I can't believe that guy is still alive. I mean really, I've seen some $hit in this job. .36 is the highest I have ever seen and the person was out before the machine finished printing the report.

How these people stay alive is beyond me. Idiots, all of them.
This got me wondering what the highest measured BAC on record was.
I found a .72 from Oregon.

I wonder if he was a painter, seems to me the folks with the highest BAC are painters. Years ago I had a .40, he was a painter and was able to walk and talk as well as anyone. That .40 was on the old machine where you put the vial in and then turned the dial. They were not asaccurateas the newdigitalsof today."A Knights Oath

I had a guy that exceeded the PBT. The PBT stopped at .51..He had a nice ride to detox. I checked the reading 3 times just to make sure, because I didnt believe it myself.

I had a .360g% once, he was a ferry boat pilot on the way to work one morning at 4:00am from a local watering hole. He failed his field sobriety test by looking for his driver's license in his wallet for 15 minutes during which time I could clearly see it. He handed me his Blockbuster card and I advised him he had a late fee due.SI VIS PACEM PARA BELLUM-Ex-Sheriff Martin Howe to Will Kane in "High Noon"
"It's a great life. You risk your skin catching killers and the juries turn them loose so they can come back and shoot at you again. If your honest , your poor your whole life. And , In the end , you wind up dying all alone on some dirty street. For what? For nothing. For a tin star."
Far from being a handicap to command, compassion is the measure of it. For unless one values the lives of his soldiers and is tormented by their ordeals , he is unfit to command.

Its been my experience that people with levels this high are usually your die hard alcoholics. I had one who blew in the low .3's and could walk and talk with only moderate indications of being drunk. I bet they never fall below a .15 ever."An Unarmed man can only flee from evil, and evil is not overcome by fleeing from it." Jeff Cooper

The highest I ever had was a 14 year old kid who was a .44. He was an alcoholic already. In the several years I had to deal with him I've never seen him sober. In his stolen vehicle a year later he was .40. Parents thought it was funny.

There was a female here that had a recording not much under that. The highest recorded female in Australia. She went to court 2 weeks ago and recieved 6 months inside and disqualified from driving 5 years. She is out on bail appealing on the grounds of severity i.e. the punishment doesnt fit the crime. This from someone who had I think 4 prior DUI convictions....I guess she's a just victim like everyone else..always someone elses fault but their own."Contrary to popular belief, you will not rise to the occasion, but will fall to the level of your training"
