Shit-faced: World Record Drunks

Sep 9th 2009



Have you ever been subjected to field sobriety tests such as walk a straight line, or follow the pen? These tests can prove faulty at times, but the standardized Breathalyzer test gives readings as accurate as 99.1%. The Breathalyzer measures the blood alcohol content (BAC) of an individual to determine the approximate level of intoxication. The legal limit for intoxication in most states is .08% and, the lethal limit generally begins at .40%. The following people have baffled the medical and scientific communities, as they have recorded the highest blood alcohol contents in the world.


––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––

34 year old man from Portland, Maine

On September 5th, 1991 a 34 year old man from Portland, Maine died in his apartment due to alcohol poisoning. His name was withheld from the article, so he shall remain unknown until further research is concluded. His blood alcohol content was registered at .39%, but medical examiners claim it could have been higher at the time of death.

Denise Thomson


Source

When Denise Thomson was arrested for DUI in Omaha, Nebraska her blood alcohol content was more than five times the legal limit, or .41%. Thomson was also charged with child abuse and negligence, as an eight year old ward of the Department of Health and Human Services was in the car with her at the time of arrest. Sarpy County Sheriff Jeff Davis stated that Thomson’s BAC was the highest he’d ever encountered while working in law enforcement.

49 year old man from Oakland, Maine

In 1991, a 49 year old man from Oakland, Maine died from a self-inflicted gunshot wound to the head. His blood alcohol content was recorded at .42% at the time of his discovery. This is a prime example as to why guns and alcohol do not mix.

Australian man from Brisbane


Source

An Australian man from Brisbane was arrested for allegedly driving under the influence at a staggering eight times the legal limit of .05. This 48 year old man’s blood alcohol content may set a Queensland record for the most impaired driver ever recorded. Australia isn’t as tolerant as other countries when dealing with impaired driving, that’s why the limit is low and enforcement is high.

41 year old woman from Farmingdale, Maine


Source

In 1991 a 41 year old woman from Farmingdale, Maine was found dead from asphyxiation and alcohol poisoning. Her blood alcohol content was stated to be .45% at the time of death. Coroners would speculate that she choked on her own vomit due to the inability to move, because of the high levels of alcohol in her body. When the body reaches intoxication levels of .45% the central nervous system will shut down which can be fatal.

Deana Jarrett

In April 2007, a former Seattle policewoman was apprehended under the suspicion of drunk driving. Deana Jarrett is being charged with a second DUI and is wanted for questioning about an earlier hit and run case that is still open. Jarrett will serve 440 days consecutively behind bars, and upon her release will be enrolled in Alcoholics Anonymous and confined to her house for the remainder of her probation. Jarrett stunned police in the Seattle-Tacoma area when her blood alcohol content was measured to be .47%.

Stanley Kobierowski


Source

While driving on route 95 in North Providence, Rhode Island Stanley Kobierowski was arrested for DUI after he was found to have struck an electronic road sign. Kobierowski, like many agitated drunks, decided to resist arrest, but this wasn’t what surprised officers. When Kobierowski’s blood alcohol content was taken, it registered a lethal .49%. Kobierowski holds the Rhode Island record for highest BAC ever recorded.

Cloyd Dull


Source

In the small town of Lorain, Ohio a local man named Cloyd Dull made history. When found slumped over in the front seat of his Plymouth with a 40 ounce in the cup holder local authorities discovered Mr. Dull’s blood alcohol content to be .53%, which is five times the legal limit in Ohio. Upon judgment, Cloyd will attend two AA meetings a week, pay more than $500 court fees, and will not be driving for the next six months to a year.

Meagan Harper


Source

Not often do you come across a mug shot and second guess yourself as to whether your looking at a criminal or not. Meagan Harper, a 30 year old woman from Oregon, standing at five feet and eleven inches tall and weighing 130 pounds doesn’t seem a likely candidate for DUI. In her lifetime, the strikingly pretty blonde has collected numerous DUI’s but this latest is her biggest as her blood alcohol content was found to be .55%. Meagan’s bail was posted at $50,000 in a Clackamas county courthouse.

Lithuanian National


Source

The policeman in the small town of Alytus, Lithuania set a record with the arrest of a 38 year old Lithuanian national, whose blood alcohol content was .65%. There are many doubts to the credibility of the story; however, authorities were amazed that the man was still alive with such a high level of intoxication.

Willard Ashley III


Source

According to the La Porte Sheriff’s Office in Indiana, Willard Ashley III and his friend Jacob Prawat were arrested for public intoxication. Upon arriving to the hospital, Ashley’s blood alcohol content was determined to be a staggering .69%. This is the highest BAC ever recorded in Indiana. Willard has two outstanding warrants for his arrest, and upon his release from the hospital was taken into custody.

Terri Comer


Source

In Klamath County, Oregon police discovered an unconscious woman behind the wheel of a wrecked Toyota. The woman’s name is Terri Comer, and upon arrival to the hospital her blood alcohol content was so high it became a state record at .72%. Nine times the legal limit in Oregon, doctors were stunned she survived. The irony in her situation is that when she was found comatose she had wrecked approximately 50 feet from an electronic road sign reminding citizens not to drink and drive.

Lithuanian National II


Source
In the summer of 2006, the policeman of the small town Utenia, Lithuania arrested a man for drunk driving, and discovered his blood alcohol content to be .84%! Refusing initial tests, doctors administered blood samples to determine toxicity. The tests proved right, as the result of .839% came back again. The man’s name isn’t identified, but his arrest is well documented.

Eric Kelly


Source
Around 2:37 am October 19th, 2007, Lock Haven police arrested undergraduate student Eric Kelly on Bellefonte Ave. for public intoxication. When Mr. Kelly was admitted to the Lock Haven hospital, his blood alcohol content registered .90%! Eric was treated and released, and later charged with public drunkenness by the Lock Haven Police Department. On a BAC chart, .40% and beyond is considered lethal, so the fact that Eric Kelly is alive is amazing.

Pyotr Petrov


Source

At the top of plastered mountain we have reigning champion Pyotr Petrov, a Bulgarian national from the town of Plovdiv. On December 20th, 2004 a Mercedes struck the 67 year old Petrov, and he was taken to a nearby hospital. Suffering minor injuries from the collision, Petrov appeared fine and was speaking to doctors coherently, until his blood alcohol content was recorded at .91%. This is the highest BAC registered in the world, as toxicologists explained he had imbibed two liters of vodka that day to achieve that BAC. After being treated and tested multiple times Petrov was released from the hospital.

“Now I want you to touch your nose with your index finger.”

Sobriety tests are necessary in order to determine the difference between impaired and functional drivers. Blood alcohol content varies from person to person based on chemistry, weight, sex, age, and personal tolerance. You may have learned that .40% BAC will result in death, but some of these people are living proof that what holds true for one, does not necessarily hold true for the other.

That's 0.9 percent - almost 1 part in one hundred of the blood being alcohol.

Poodleshooter  [Team Member]

point 9 percent
That's .009 of your blood by volume as ethanol-so just under 1% of your blood circulating is booze.

When I checked myself into the hospital to detox, I was .24 and was perfectly coherent. I actually was starting to get the shakes from needing a drink while I was in admitting. Fortunately, I brought in a pint of vodka with me.

It's not so amazing to be at .4 and higher, anyone can just start chugging and not stop until they shutdown. The amazing part to me is that these people were caught doing things that people in the .2 range have trouble with. Driving for example, it's widely accepted that once you get above .3 you generally can't drive because you're so disoriented that you wouldn't know what to do and/or have the internal drive to do it. Yet some of these people were caught driving at double that and even triple that.

Thats funny. A few guys from the FD were asking one of our LEO's about what his highest DUI was. It was from years ago, but he still had a copy of the print out. It was a .42 IIRC. He was weaving all over the place, going very slow, and driving on lawns, so they pulled him over and he was just blitzed. The guy (who was fairly young) ended up dying, not right then but a few months later.

All I can say is .90!!! That's insane, especially if they're still functional!!

I recently purchased a breathalyzer, just for shits and gigs for party's and get togethers and such. I recently blew this, it's the highest I've personally gotten it, but my brother got a .34. The max is .40, and we've got a running bet going with 4 of us. The first one to max it out gets 100 dollars from the other participants.

I treated a .524% and a .42% last week in the ER (confirmed by blood test). Both were attributed to vodka ...a lot of vodka. You can't pull those kind of numbers and live to tell about it without some experience.
hungrymonkey  [Member]

I had a 41 come through the ER once. The person had fallen and injured her ankle. An ETOH was run as a "what the hell" test. Since the person mentioned that they had a few drinks.

About 20 minutes after the labs were drawn. The lab tech called down and asked if the person was breathing on thier own.


fwiw, I am a pretty decent judge of telling who has been drinking or not. I see it several times per shift. some people are honest, some are not.
If the woman had not said she was drinking, I would of missed it. No slurring, decent balance, appropriate mentation.

If your meter is somewhat accurate, then that's a stupid game to be playing (and a 100 bucks isn't the stupid prize you'll likely be winning).

I've done .3 a few times, even .4 twice when I was drinking. Be 5 years clean in December. I got a new hobbie now, gun collecting. So I suppose I could get into a altogether different kind of trouble theses days. By the way .9 = 90%.

Correct. Some people process the booze better than others. The fact that someone can still function at .4% shows that.
Many,many times have I been around guys in the .4 and above range. Never did death cross my mind.
