Drunk driver measures .525 BAC in Blaine, Minn.
BLAINE, Minn. (FOX 9) - Police stopped a drunk driver recently who was more than six times over the alcohol limit in Blaine.
The Minnesota Office of Traffic Safety says the 30-year-old driver had a Blood Alcohol Content (BAC) of .525 when he was pulled over.
A person with a normal alcohol tolerance most likely would have been passed out by that point. The Cleveland Clinic says any blood-alcohol content over 0.40 is potentially fatal and puts the abuser at risk of a coma.
"The impaired driver, who could barely stand up was lucky that his decision to drink and drive didn’t take a life that day," The Office of Traffic Safety concludes.
