There is an interesting case out of Iowa City where Levi B. Carter, 28, has been charged with drunk driving. Nothing uncommon there. However, Carter was arrested at his home after a passenger called police following a crash into a street sign. He was found at home with a blood alcohol content nearly six times the legal limit.
When police arrived and say that they found Carter in his basement talking to “people that were not there” and could barely stand. The reports indicate a delay of a couple hours which raises the question of where he became so intoxicated. However, the defense can be countered by the eyewitness testimony of his own passenger.
Carter registered off the scale of the machine. He below a .467 per cent before it simply read ‘HI’ as unmeasurable. A blood alcohol level of 0.4 and above is viewed as presenting a serious risk to someone’s life with the possibility of unconsciousness and death.
