On Saturday evening's "On Patrol: Live" TV show, Indian River County FL was investigating a single-car accident. The woman driver refused a field sobriety check, so they arrested her on suspicion. TL;DR she blew a .32 at the station, and they took her to the hospital for medical attention as a precaution (and I ASSume to do a "medically-necessary" blood draw to back up the breath test.) The three active-duty officers that they had in studio seemed shocked that someone could blow a .32.

Anyway, my question is how unusual a .32 BAC is, and what are some of the highest readings seen by some of the LEOs here?????

My middle son tested at .32 in high school. Captain!

He was a wet noodle as I shoved him into the car to take to hospital. They pumped his stomach

Next morning his male nurse told him “You were so drunk I shoved a catheter up your deek and you didn’t even notice. You don’t believe me? Go take a leak”

Most times you see readings between .120 to .180, readings up over .200 are unusual. The first Impaired I arrested as a rookie blew .320, he had pissed his pants and was falling down drunk, the other one that comes to mind that blew around .300 had shit his pants. I have also arrested an impaired at .400 who had very little signs of impairment, clearly a well seasoned alcoholic. I remember the breath tech saying to the guy you should be dead and the guy laughing about it. Our policy was that anyone at .300 went to the hospital, nobody wants a drunk dying in the cells. The highest reading I ever heard was a guy I know who worked in a very remote fly in reserve. They had a homicide and the blood test on the deceased was .820.

This woman appeared to be over 50, and amazingly had a clean drivers license when they ran it. She seemed to be walking fine, and other than the smell (and making a left turn into a drainage ditch instead of the road she lives on at night) really didn't present as the usual drunk driver on the show. In the studio, one of the guest officers from Toledo muttered that she was a functional alcoholic when they found out the .32 BAC test results later in the show.

She did have her list of (fake) medical excuses ready for refusing the roadside field sobriety tests, and then later wanted to do them after they put her into the chrome bracelets under suspicion of DUI. She also let out a zinger...how can I be intoxicated if I haven't even drank the three bottles of wine in my car yet? She kept saying that she doesn't normally drive at night as her excuse for the accident, but I suspect that she made an exception because she ran out of wine.

The police did her a little favor at the end, letting her husband pay the tow truck driver in cash to drop her car in their driveway rather than impounding it until Monday. He walked to the scene from their house, and wasn't in the car when she drove it into the ditch.....

One of the absolute nuttiest women you’ll ever see. Really wish the officer wasn’t so patient.

No that’s how we talk. I just told a shit talker the other day, who asserted that I was a punk and he could kick my ass, “You sure do talk a lot for a guy who refused to open the door and roll down the window. All bark and no bite, like a chihuahua.”

I just watched this video and this guy was just begging to get tased or maybe shot. At one point one of the officers said that the vehicle was disabled (presumably by Onstar) and yet the driver was able to put it in gear and pull away so I have a question. Does Onstar shut the vehicle down or just disable the throttle pedal?

On-Star can disable the vehicle remotely.

Our region lost an officer yesterday in the rain storm, when the patrol car that he was driving went off of the road on a notoriously dangerous parkway on the other side of the river. A passing motorist stopped and used the patrol car's radio to call for help (audio clip at beginning of video below), and obviously was not familiar with radio protocols:

"SUSPECTED" DUI driver driving north in southbound lane of highway 1 swiped a K-9 sheriff and sent the unit over the edge and onto the rocky coast. Officer may have broken ribs, ankle. K-p went with him to same hospital to treat a laceration on face.

I don't know about the USA but I know north of the border departmental MVC's are a significant hazard. It's not just assaults that see officers injured.

Yeah we have them often here; a mix of death or serious injuries from DUI suspects killing officers and duty related crashes.

The radio's in the scout car back in the day were less than reliable. Often referred to as "the junk in the trunk".
