    Man Arrested For His 22nd Drunk Driving Offense

    ESPANOLA, N.M.—Police said a man was arrested on Monday for his 22nd drunken driving offense—and his blood-alcohol content tested almost five times higher than New Mexico's legal limit. State Police Lt. Eric Garcia said an officer pulled up to a car parked along a highway and found a 51-year-old man on the ground near his vehicle.

    "He was coherent," Garcia said. "He showed signs of slurred speech, as might be normal for any DWI arrest, which led the officer to believe he might be driving under the influence."
    Garcia said the suspect had to be taken by ambulance to Christus St. Vincent hospital in Santa Fe, where a blood-alcohol analysis showed a content level of .393 percent. New Mexico's limit for presumed intoxication is .08 percent.
    Police said records showed the man has been arrested five times in New Mexico and at least 16 times elsewhere.
    The suspect, who faces a felony DWI charge, was booked into the Santa Fe County jail.
    Garcia said records showed the man faces pending DWI charges in Angel Fire and Espanola. He also was served with arrest warrants from San Miguel, Bernalillo and Sandoval Counties—all on DWI-related charges. Garcia didn't know if the man had any prior DWI convictions.

    Apparently the courts are waiting until he kills someone, so they won't be criticised too much for putting him in prison prematurely

    Sad that it happens that way. I thought it was supposed to be all about prevention but apparently the courts and / or the DUI lawyers see it differently.

    Just out of curiosity, are there any states that do not have a legal BAC limit of .08? Seems that .08 is the standard across the board.

    What happened to the prior arrests? As fried as ths guy was reported, prison seems the only way to keep him off the road.

    If he kills someone could he be charged with Murder 1st Degree "with extreme indifference to human life" and causes a death?

    WA State RCW 9A 32 030 (1) A person is guilty of murder in the first degree when:
    (a) With a premeditated intent .......
    (b) Under circumstances manifesting an extreme indifference to human life, he or she engages in conduct which creates a grave risk of death to any person, and thereby causes the death of a personr

    The federal government has forced states to conform with .08 g % as their legal limit by threatening to cut federal hwy funds to states that did not comply. For much of my career the legal limit in Louisiana was .10 g %.

    Thanks. I'm glad that I could be amusing with my comments.

    For some reason I thought there were some states that were stricter on their BAC rate.

    That should have been done 18 or 19 arrests ago.
