Yes. .4+ BAC kills most people.

I learned this when a friend was taken to the hospital for alcohol poisoning and he had over a .5 BAC. He lived, because he is a raging alcoholic and alcoholics can tolerate more than us mortals.

He was definitely sorry for partying.

This is correct. It is actually fairly common for the preliminary test to be lower than the actual test.


Wait-so I can get behind the wheel after drinking and be legal, and then become illegal on the drive home? That sucks.

a few posters mentioned on page 2 why the breathalyzer was probably off.

That's correct. As one poster pointed out, that is why sometime the cops will make you wait 20 to 30 minutes before the actual BAC test. It takes a little time for alcohol to hit your blood.

That is why people get out of the car and chug liquor when they are driving drunk. Cops can't say if you were drunk before you drank the boose in front of them



Ya I would love to see someone do this and actually get away with it!!!

lucky he was found by cop.

probably would have been dead.

the data in this thread says he had more alcohol in his blood than blood. is that even really possible?

Otto, you have a really poor grasp of numbers. The alcohol was less than 1%. BAC is nothing like batting average; maybe where you are confused.

It's 0.627% = 0.00627 = 6.27/1000

Not 0.627 = 62.7% = 62.7/100

If I were a cop and administered a breathalyzer test which registered that high a number...

I think the first thing I'd do is make sure the guy didn't have an open airline-sized bottle of Wild Turkey stuck in his esophagus.
