If you’re drinking, don’t drive.
Stanley Kobierowski was arrested with the highest blood alcohol level in Rhode Island history on Tuesday morning. His level of 0.491 percent should have had him comatose yet he was behind the wheel of his car.
Kobierowski was charged with driving while intoxicated and resisting arrest after driving into a message board on Interstate 95 in Providence.
When police arrived the man had trouble getting out of his car and then grabbed it refusing to move. The troopers had to carry the drunken man to the breakdown lane before taking him to the barracks. When a breath test revealed his reading at 0.489 he was taken to hospital and put into detox.
He is set to appear in court on Friday. The judge allowed him to go home until then.
He is very lucky to be alive, according to the health department a blood alcohol level of 0.30 is classified as stupor, 0.4 is comatose and 0.5 is considered fatal.
