Woman Has Record-Setting Blood-Alcohol Content

Comments (0)

According to authorities in South Dakota, the DUI of a woman they discovered passed out in a stolen vehicle may have set a state record, as her blood-alcohol content was 0.708 percent, which is nearly nine times the legal limit of 0.08.

 

According to Meade County State’s Attorney Jesse Sondreal, his research indicates that in about half of the population, a level of 0.40 percent is considered lethal. He said state chemists can’t remember registering a blood-alcohol content of more than 0.56 percent.

 

Authorities say troopers discovered 45-year-old Marguerite Engle passed out beside a highway on December 1 in a van that had been reported stolen.

 

She missed her December 15 court appearance, but was located on December 28 sitting in another stolen vehicle in a ditch beside another highway after another apparent round of drinks.
