    .490 BAC drunk driver arrested

    The truly scary part to me is that he was turned loose. Anyone who can be remotely conscious at that blood alcohol level is a serious drinker. Odds are SO high he will be seriously drinking shortly after a 24 hour detox just to keep the physical withdrawls at bay. And chances are that will mean more driving.

    This is an accident waiting to happen.... Very sad.

    .490 BAC drunk driver arrested

    Recent cases of high blood alcohol levels
    In November 2007, a driver was found passed out in her car in Oregon. A blood test showed her blood alcohol level was 0.550. She was charged with several offenses, including two counts of driving under the influence of an intoxicant, reckless endangerment of a person, criminal mischief and driving with a suspended license. Her bail was later set at $50,000 since she had several previous convictions for similar offenses.[25][26][27]

    In December 2007, a driver was arrested in Klamath County, Oregon after she was found unconscious in her car which was stuck in a snow bank with its engine running. Police were forced to break a car window to remove her. After realizing she was in alcohol induced-coma, they rushed her to the hospital where a blood test showed her blood alcohol level was 0.720. She reportedly was released from the hospital the next day.[25][28] She was subsequently charged with drunk driving.[29]

    In July 2008, a driver was arrested after he ran into a highway message board on Interstate 95 in Providence, Rhode Island. A breath test showed his blood alcohol level was at 0.491 and he was raced to the hospital where he was sedated and placed in a detoxification unit. He was subsequently charged with driving while intoxicated and resisting arrest.[30][31] He was later sentenced to one year probation, a $500 fine, 40 hours of community service and a one-year loss of his driver's license. The police later stated that his blood alcohol level was the highest they had ever seen for someone who hadn't died of alcohol poisoning.[32] It was later estimated that the driver had consumed 10-14 drinks over the course of 1–2 hours.[25], based on the standard levels of elimination which as documented previously can vary by up to 300%.

    In December 2009, a South Dakota woman was found behind the wheel of a stolen car with a measured blood alcohol content of .708, almost nine times the state's limit of .08, thus becoming the highest recorded level of alcohol toxicity for the state. After she was hospitalized, she was released on bond and subsequently found the next day in another stolen automobile while under the influence.[33]

    [edit] Highest recorded blood alcohol level/content
    In December 2004, a man was admitted to the hospital in Plovdiv, Bulgaria after being struck by a car. After detecting a strong alcohol odor, doctors at a hospital conducted a breath test which displayed the man's blood alcohol content at 0.914% Concerned that their equipment was malfunctioning, doctors also performed five separate lab tests, all of which confirmed the man's incredible BAC.[34] The man was treated for serious injuries sustained in the crash but survived.[35] There have been cases reported in which individuals have supposedly survived BACs of over 1% but only limited information is available.[36]

    In March 2009, a 45-year-old man was admitted to the hospital in Skierniewice, Poland after being struck by a car. The blood test shows blood alcohol content at 1.23%. The man survived. He did not remember either the accident or people he drank with.
