New high & low for drunk driver

PROVIDENCE, R.I. - A man whose blood-alcohol level was the highest ever recorded in Rhode Island for someone who wasn't dead was arrested after crashing his car early Tuesday, state police said.

Stanley Kobierowski, who blew a 0.491, had trouble getting out of the car after he crashed into a message board on Interstate 95, forcing troopers to carry him to the breakdown lane before taking him back to their barracks, said Maj. Steven O'Donnell.

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.

Kobierowski, 34, was taken to a hospital, put in the detoxification unit and sedated, said O'Donnell. He was arraigned on charges of driving while intoxicated and resisting arrest, and he was released after promising to appear Friday at a court hearing.

This guy is lucky that it turn out worse than it did. All they probably will do is fine him and suspend his license, but he needs to give up alcohol and count his blessings
