That photo and the accompanying article says it all. I think after the Erin Andrews incident we all shouldn't be surprised by this, but that guy was REALLY getting after it.
OT: Rey Maualuga... SORRY FOR PARTYING!
wow. that BRO must go through a lot of product when he goes out for bottle service.
Broe Namath would be proud
Less work for Dahani to keep his LB job. BAC .157 good God man.
probably equivalent to 4 or 5 beers in 2 hours...
Definitely a bit more than that for a guy his size, but I agree that it's a little bit closer to regular old drunk than totally hammered.
.02 for every beer, 5 oz of wine, or ounce of liquor
.02 metabolized every hour.
To get to .157, you have to have eight more beers or ounces of liquor than hours you have been drinking them.
A couple of overpoured watermelons or Long Islands can get you there if you drink them fast enough. Bartenders usually seem to overpour for celebrities because they want their approval, not to mention the chance at a gratuity worth a week's paycheck.
For comparison, until MADD became powerful, the level for intoxication used to be .15 in Michigan.
Your numbers don't add up. You're telling me I could drink seven beers in an hour and drive before MADD?
That would be .0157. Legal limit for most states is .08. 15% of the guys blood was booze.
But I don't think .157 equates to 15.7%.
That's wrong in two ways: He meant .157. If you could chug 4 beers and only get one quarter of the way to drunk driving, it would be significantly more rare.
Also, BAC is already a percentage. A BAC of 0.157 means that 0.157% of his blood was booze. That's still high--for reference, according to wikipedia, most first-time drinkers would be unconcious by that point. It also says a BAC of 0.40 is lethal for half of adults (everyone, not just first-time drinkers).
I'm not even sure why I'm taking the time to respond to this post. Wrong on so many levels.
1. .157 means that .157% of the liquid in his blood stream was alcohol.
1a. Blood cannot be booze.
1b. 15% is way off.
2. .157 is not ridiculously high. I've heard reports of people being double that before and .20 is not beyond something that all of us have probably done before.
was the limit. So Ray was .007 over the old limit. Hardly bombed, and definetly not crazy passed out at the wheel drunk. As sad as it is to say, most of us have driven with a .15. It doesn't take much to get there.
I don't accept that argument. Ray was nearly double the current limit, which is the only one that matters. It's not like the two limits were of equal merit and MADD just was the more powerful group. You don't have to be "crazy passed out" to kill someone. MADD got the limit changed because .15 was dangerous. You may have chosen to play Russian roulette with other peoples' lives and gotten away with it but that doesn't excuse the behavior.
And then some of us haven't driven with a .15.
Grady's .281 -- that's about 18 beers over 4 hours for those scoring at home.
edit: sorry hermosa
I don't believe Dhani was competing with Ray for the MLB spot. I dont see why these millionaires can't hire a driver for a night. .157 is definitely not safe, but nothing special in terms of Athlete DUI #'s.
Kevin Grady blew .281
Well, if he transferred wouldn't he have to sit out a year?
It's about damn time!
Rey Maualuga is the new Latarian Milton.
It's fun to bad things.
It translates to over a half-Grady.
are you in theta chi?
i sincerely apologize.
"Looks like he just got arrested for being the man and having a good time."
Stay thirsty my friends.
if you arent down with drunk driving, i'm not down with you. So i'm down with Rey!!
