This guy is a total moron but I also have to stand up and salute you, sir! You have taken alcoholism and the horror of addiction to a whole new level.
We’ve all had it, whether it be in college, or in our 20 somethings, maybe even into our 30s. You drink, you get drunk, you get the munchies, you eat food, you throw up.
A blood alcohol level of .08 is legally drunk in all 50 states (and Washington D.C. – technically it is .05 in Utah but I digress). By .15 you’re seriously impaired. For most humans, .30 is pass out drunk and nearing a medical crisis. How about .483? Your blood is just under 1/2 percent alcohol! You are a walking talking Bartles and James wine cooler from 1986 – vampire flavor.
Not only did Michael Kennett of Poseyville, Indiana, DRIVE to Arby’s with a BAC of .483, but he also walked in, ordered food, and ate some of it before passing out at the table. Additionally, the only thing he apparently hit while driving there was the curb.
.483 would kill most people, but if you drink enough, you become a functioning drunk at this level.
This story has it all, moronic, amazing, and sad. What Mr. Kennett needs is clinical help, to have his car keys taken away, and an Arby’s beef and cheddar with a large order of potato cakes.
