Accuracy[edit]

I know the story says it is only a claim of record, but this recent story seems to indicate that it is not even close: http://www.cbc.ca/story/world/national/2005/01/04/drunk-bulgarian-050104.html (found on the comments page). However, I also have noticed that there can be a lot of confusion with BACs some countries measure it as % by volume and other as % by weight. Since alcohol is very light compared to the other components in blood, I believe it makes a relatively large difference. --SVTCobra 16:34, 23 July 2008 (UTC)

The record claimed in the title is "highest DUI blood-alcohol reading". The record claimed in the body claims highest blood-alcohol reading. Guess we'll have to check out which record is being claimed. Wikidsoup (talk) 16:42, 23 July 2008 (UTC)
Hmm one article says "highest ever recorded in Rhode Island for someone who wasn't dead" and another "the State Police say is the highest blood alcohol count in the agency’s history". Wikidsoup (talk) 16:43, 23 July 2008 (UTC)
OK made some adjustments to article. Wikidsoup (talk) 16:46, 23 July 2008 (UTC)
