Thought this story was appropriate for this board:

R.I. Police Arrest Man With Record .491 Blood Alcohol Level

Wednesday, July 23, 2008


PROVIDENCE, R.I. — State police say they arrested a man early Tuesday whose blood alcohol level was 0.491 percent — the highest ever recorded in Rhode Island for someone who wasn't dead.

Stanley Kobierowski was taken to a hospital, put in the detoxification unit and sedated, said Maj. Steven O'Donnell. He was arraigned Tuesday on charges of driving while intoxicated and resisting arrest, and he was released after promising to appear Friday at a court hearing.

"The person's lucky they survived," O'Donnell said. "There's no doubt he would have gotten killed or killed someone if he had continued on the route he was taking."

A phone listing for Kobierowski could not be found, and he did not have a lawyer in court Tuesday.

Kobierowski, 34, of North Providence, was arrested after he drove into a highway message board on Interstate 95 in Providence, O'Donnell said.

After police arrived, Kobierowski had trouble getting out of the car, then grabbed it and refused to move, forcing troopers to carry him to the breakdown lane before taking him back to their barracks, O'Donnell said.

A breath test showed blood alcohol readings of 0.489 percent, followed by 0.491, O'Donnell said, the highest readings state officials could remember for someone who didn't end up dead.

The legal limit in Rhode Island is 0.08. A level of 0.30 is classified as stupor, 0.4 is comatose and 0.5 is considered fatal, according to the health department.


His blood was nearly .50% alcohol! Nevermind him driving, how was he blinking!!!

Unbelievable!!

I find it funny that the first three letters of the news title are R.I.P (with the capitals and dots and all)

Still to almost hit the 0.5% blood alcohol level is pretty impressive/scary/crazy/sad...

Somebody out there is very lucky he crashed into that message board...

You're right. 0.5% BAC means .5 grams per 100 grams of blood; IOW, one half of one percent of your blood is alcohol.

People have survived up to .914%

Sounds like me when I thought it would be a good idea to bong an entire 700ml bottle of 100 proof "YUKON JACK" about 15 years ago.

I don't remember anything after 15 minutes and I was puking my buts out at 6pm the folling day... nearly 22 hours later...
