But officer, it was only 20 litres of beer

From correspondents in Sofia, Bulgaria August 05, 2008 09:06am

A MOTORIST stopped by Bulgarian police after a minor traffic accident admitted he had drunk 20 litres of beer - and promptly passed out, local TV reported.

The man had a blood alcohol reading more than double the level usually considered lethal, bTV TV said.

The 25-year old driver, who was not named, registered 0.851 blood alcohol content. Bulgaria's legal limit is 0.05 percent, and 0.40 is often fatal.
Bulgarian police have upped the number of road checks lately following a spate of serious accidents.

More than 1000 people were killed in road accidents in 2007 in Bulgaria, which has a population of 7.7 million.

When I worked Security at a Hopsital we had a few frequent flyers that routinely came in at close to the same limit as this tool....most of them would drink mouth wash....

I call BS on this one, perhaps not intentional. Call me a skeptic, but I don't have much faith in Bulgarian medical evaluations. :cool:

The highest I've ever seen was .556 from a professional drunk who thinks nothing of chugging Listerine like it's Gatorade. I can't imagine anyone being that much worse than my guy and surviving.

Delta I have to say I agree, 4 yrs in the Emergency room and the highest I saw was a little higher than your pro drunk...It was amazing though to see these guys get up and walk out perfectly fine a few hrs later..
