Several years ago I was screwing around with an old PBT that was not inservice anymore and got it to read a .625 (or close to it).  15 minutes later it was .07, I think.  Its been a while

a .41 on a guy who was passed out at 1100 in the morning, in the sun, in a populated park! No one called, I found him there. Bystander said, "oh, he hs been there for about 2 hours, I thought he might be dead, I was worried..."  Nice concerned lady!

0.39 a few years back . . . most these days are under 0.10, which is a good thing.

Is this question directed at me personally? Or are we talking about people we have caught? ; ) JK!!


.29 is the highest that I've arrested that would actually submit a specimen. He was toasted!! Almost drove off into the lake. He was parting traffic like Moses did the Red Sea..Just couldnt understand why he was stopped either...go figure..

Back when I worked DUI's I saw a .285 that my partner and I nabbed as I was only hte back officer and could not take credit for that one.  It was on  the " I " after an accident.  My personal best was a fella that only blew a .190 and when I was doing SFST's on him he was kicken butt and doing the balance and coordination tests well.  When I asked him to walk the white line, he chuckled and said I can't walk it, but I can snort it.  As the incident progressed, he finally messed up on his finger dexterity and count, slight but noticable and I was able to take him in for BAC.


I found out he was a construction worker and he was the guy who walked the steel " I "  beams carrying tools and stuff, so it was old hat to him.  That was the first and last time I ever heard anyone tell me they couldn't walk the line, but they could snort it...

Me..........plead the fifth.......LOL.


Someone I arrested...........a .36 BAC. She plowed into upwards of 10 cars and almost took out a WMATA Transit officer in the process. After she was seen by EMS, we had to carry her to the transport car and into the holding cell. Of course she was found guilty and did two weeks in jail as a result.

Never put myself on the machine, but , judging by the hangover, I'm sure I've eclipsed the .30 range (with a D.D. of course!).

Just finished an intoxilizer operator class and the instructor said the MO record was .71 from the extreme SE part of the state, and she was driving, in her 60's and lifelong alcoholic, seemed unbelievably high to me, but figure the instructor would know for sure.

This story goes back a number of years but I recall I had a .45 which scared the hell out of me. I did'nt think it was possible to walk around at that level. As my career continued I saw worse. People just never let you down on how stupid they can be.

I arrested a man for DWI just as he pulled into his driveway at a .42  When he got out of his car I was having him perform some field sobriety tests when his mother came out of the house and confronted me and her 48 year old little boy.  As he whipped out his private (facing his mother) he started urinating and proceded to cry out to mommy that I was going to ruin their Christmas.  Yup I did Mr. Jingle Bells.


Highest I personally know of was my brother being put into detox at .45

Highest I ever had behind a wheel was a .31, but, when I saw the local town drunk staggering down the middle of our main street I had him blow into the PBT and it was a .41. Took him straight to detox. But, about 6 months later we lodged him on a CSC 2nd warrent and had to take him to the hospital after a couple of hours as he keep becoming more intoxicated.  They drew blood and it came back to .52!!! and they had to strap him to a gurney to keep him from leaving!!!!

We figured this guy had a maint level of at least a .30 just to be able to function.  Even at the over .50 he was walking and talking and made sense. He said he chugged a 5th of Vodka before being picked up as he expected to not see a drink for a long time.  Fortunately for him, the complaint ultimately turned out to be bogus as the so called victim came for saying she lied about the whole thing.

.39 on a female and other than HGN she seemed good to go.  It was her 11th DUI.
