Police said Tuesday 41-year-old Vidmantas Sungaila registered 7.27 grams per liter of alcohol in his blood repeatedly on different devices when he was pulled over for driving his truck down the center of a two-lane highway 60 miles from the capital, Vilnius on Saturday. Lithuania's legal limit is 0.4 grams per liter. How does this translate to our system of measuring BAC?

... told police he had been drinking the night before and tried to freshen up by downing a pint of beer for breakfast.

0.73 percent.

BAC in the range of 0.30 - 0.60 percent have been found in people who have died of acute alcohol poisoning.

There's no way. They said they used different devices, but were they all breathalizers? I'm betting there is something about this guys respiratory system that must throw them off. I'd be interested to see if they drew blood.

Give me a break.

You'd do the same thing if you were named Vidmantas.

Hard to take a "news" story seriously when the next story is about the death of "BooBoo the Chicken."

I've gotten some DUI diversions done for folks, but I don't think I'd present one to the prosecutor in this case.
