I'm impressed he was even able to get the key in the ignition.
Drunk Driver Had Enough Alcohol in Him to Kill Two Men
A man arrested for drunk driving in North Liberty, Iowa, was found to have a blood-alcohol level so high it could have killed him twice over.
24-year-old Justin A. Clack was driving "all over the road" according to witnesses who called police on him late last month. Clark's initial breath test yielded a 0.486 percent BAC — but a later test conducted at the hospital found his true BAC to be 0.627.
According to The Cedar Rapids Gazette, 0.30 percent would be enough to kill a person. North Liberty Police Chief Jim Warkentin said he was taught at the academy that an inebriated individual with .4 percent or above in their system is considered "clinically dead."
He said he was unable to say what Clark was drinking that night, but University of Iowa Hospitals and Clinics emergency room doctor Michael Takacs said that kind of BAC requires the consumption of "35 shots, bottles of beer or glasses of wine in four hours
This dude was raging.
In all seriousness though, this guy needs help. Stay off the road please.
35 shots is alot.
Assuming a normal 1oz shot, thats basicly the entire contents of a litre bottle + 2 more shots. Not a usual fifith (750 ml), but the larger full litre bottle and then some.
Now, I've done a few fifths in my early years, and one time a fifth and ~ a 1/4 (of vodka) with a resultant blackout (and I weighed 290 pounds then)......but a full litre, awake and driving, in a normal sized dude?
why does the trees in Nebraska lean eastward?
35 drinks in a couple hours
Ive awoke in some weird spots after consuming what i thought was a lot of alcohol, thank god i never came to behind the wheel.
I don't buy that sh*t for a second that a .30 BAC is enough to kill you.
About 12 years ago I got a DUI and blew a .27 when I took the breathalyzer. That was when I was 22 and I weighed about 190 back then.
Stupid choice to drive, but I was certainly not close to death because of how much I consumed.
