    Decades ago, 0.24% BAC, was very common. One I arrested blew 0.42% BAC in the days before DWI were hospitalized at 0.28%. There was a fatality involved for toxic alcohol poisoning to the deceased and then the figure went fro 0.44% to 0.28%. My partner on patrol, arrested one DWI at 0.47% BAC and another at 0.46% BAC.
    Depending on a persons build, weight, food in stomach and sleep, some do not feel the alcohol until 0.12%, others at 0.16%, or large people at 0.18%. Today the bottom line remains, the DWI are a keeper and systemized at 0.04% (two 12 ounce beers). A shot of 80 proof is 0.02%, and on average, the lungs and kidneys process at an average of 0.02% per hour. I did not allow the DWIs to smoke until after the blew in the Breathalyzer (Smith & Wesson 3000 unit). Why? Because most people simply made an honest mistake and drank too much, and smoking could elevate the readout when smoke in the lungs mixed with alcohol vapors and then, went to the brain. I tried to give them an edge, because they were in for a bad enough time. I was pretty accurate in gauging the drunk by their eye movements. Then the druggies thought they could beat the breathalyzer, but even without physical evidence, there is common law. Things to lookout for are diabetics, because they could be having a medical emergency.
