Man Arrested For DUI With Lethal BAC Levels

levi carterLevi Carter, a 28 year-old man from Iowa City is lucky to be alive after police arrested him for DUI with a blood alcohol content (BAC) level of .467%. Lethal BAC levels usually fall between .40% and .50%. The incident occurred on January 3, 2013 when police say Carter hit a street sign and fled to his home. It was the passenger in Carters vehicle that told police Carter may have been too drunk to drive Friday night that eventually led them to his home.

Carter was allegedly speeding at the time of the incident, reaching speeds of 55 mph in a 25 mph zone. When police arrived at his home, they found him smelling strongly of alcohol and barely able to stand on his own, two symptoms of alcohol intoxication. Police also said that Carter was talking to people not in the room and could not successfully complete any field sobriety tests. An initial breathalyzer test showed Carter to have a lethal BAC level of .467%, however, upon receiving another test, the breathalyzer machine simply showed an error message.
