Wisconsin Man Arrested for DUI has BAC Ten Times the Legal Limit

A man arrested for his sixth offense of drunk driving reportedly had a BAC that was ten times the legal limit. Julio Garrdio, 61, of Madison, was traveling northbound in southbound lane around 3:30 p.m. on Thursday. Nearby, police officers were conducting traffic enforcement and watched as his vehicle suddenly stopped without any apparent reason to do so. Officers approached Garrdio and arrested him for his sixth OWI/DUI offense. His blood alcohol content was .20%.

A motorist with five OWI convictions in Wisconsin cannot legally drive if their BAC is over 0.02%. This is why Garrdio’s BAC was technically ten times the legal limit, even though the state law mandates that the legal limit is 0.08%. Wisconsin police say that Garrido may also be charged with failure to install an ignition interlock device and with third offense driving after license revocation.

If you have been arrested for driving drunk, contact an experienced and skilled Wisconsin OWI/DUI attorney for legal assistance.
