From Iowa Citizen Press
Iowa– A North Liberty, Iowa man has been arrested for driving with a blood-alcohol content nearly eight times over the legal limit.
Police Chief Jim Warkentin told Gannett Newspaper, the Iowa CItizen Press, that 24-year-old Justin A. Clark’s blood-alcohol content of .627 percent was the highest he’s ever heard of in his career, which spans more than two decades.
“It’s just amazing,” Warkentin said. “It’s just amazing the person was conscious to be that high. Most people don’t make it above .3, they end up passing out.”
According to a North Liberty police criminal complaint, officers were dispatched to the area of Red Barn Drive at 10:05 p.m. July 29 for reports of a driver who was all over the road, hitting curbs and the vehicle had come to rest in a yard on Stone Creek Circle.
Police said a resident flagged down an officer to point out the driver, who was revving up his motor. The officer approached the driver, identified as Clark, from the driver’s side of the car.
Clark was sitting in the driver’s seat and was unable to answer any of the officer’s questions, police said. He also was unable to get out of the vehicle, walk or perform field sobriety tests, police said. ….MORE
