Yes officer, I had one with dinner

R.I. State police say they arrested a man early Tuesday whose blood alcohol level was 0.491 percent — the highest ever recorded in Rhode Island for someone who wasn't dead.

.491 percent!! Now that's screaming drunk but even more perplexing is this:

Stanley Kobierowski was taken to a hospital, put in the detoxification unit and sedated, said Maj. Steven O'Donnell. He was arraigned Tuesday on charges of driving while intoxicated and resisting arrest, and he was released after promising to appear Friday at a court hearing.

First off, he was sedated?!?! Didn't the heroic amount of alcohol coursing through his veins sedate him enough? Geessssh, give the guy a slice of pizza and a comfy couch and he'd be out like a light at that level. Also, not only is Mr. Kobierowski a legend for being that drunk he also was capable of "resisting arrest!" That's an amazing feat, I tip my hat to you sir. Oh, and in case you are wondering:

A level of 0.30 is classified as stupor, 0.4 is comatose and 0.5 is considered fatal, according to the health department.

Perhaps we should reclassify that… just maybe.
