Woman registers a .47 on breath tester Wed Apr 18, 10:51 PM ET



REDMOND, Wash. - A Woodinville woman arrested following two car crashes last week registered a .47 blood-alcohol content on a breath test — nearly six times the legal intoxication threshold and possibly a state record.

Deana F. Jarrett, 54, was taken to Evergreen Hospital as a precaution following her arrest April 11, the Washington State Patrol said Wednesday. No one was injured in the accidents.

Jarrett blew the .47 on a portable breath tester after she collided with two other vehicles in quick succession, the patrol said. A check of all 356,000 breath tests administered since 1998 in Washington turned up only 35 above .40 — and none of those was higher than .45.

The legal intoxication threshold in Washington is .08.

Jarrett did not appear to have a listed phone number, and it was not clear if she had obtained a lawyer.

You'd be surprised, Roo.

A few friends of mine, professionals all, got hold of a commercial breathalyzer and decided to play. The king of the drunks, Mr Al Coholic himself blew a .39 and he wasn't slurring or stumbling around. I've seen this guy do an entire 30pack at a party and be fine.

It boggles the mind.

Aren't they less accurate if you've just had an alcoholic beverage? I swear I read somewhere that you will blow way higher than normal if you had just chugged down something with a lot of alcohol.

Wow, my buddy blew a .43 on his 21st B-day. He was being carried and had lost all bladder control, but he was awake insofar as his eyes were open and blinking. I'll have to let him know he's got to get back in the race!

A few years ago I ran across a news article from a DUI in Ohio, the guy had a .52 BAC.
