From the Daily Telegraph:
Dude blows a .462, and faces possible jail time. In Texas, he'd be hanging by his huevos, with his head enclosed in a cage full of hungry badgers.BY all accounts he should be dead, but somehow Rafer Wilson survived a two-week drinking binge to record a blood-alcohol reading more than nine times the legal .05 limit.
With an empty vodka bottle lying on the passenger seat of his beige Mazda 626, the 35-year-old crashed into a parked car on Caringbah Rd, not 200m from his Caringbah home in Sydney's south.
His words were close to unintelligible but he allegedly managed to reveal he had been drinking for two weeks.
It was 4.15pm and on that day alone, October 24, 2003, he had managed to finish off one-and-a-half bottles, or 35 nips, of vodka to record a blood-alcohol reading of .462.
This time he faces a possible jail term.
.462. Damn. Can't beat the footnote, though.
NSW Police confirmed the highest recorded drink driving reading in the state was a woman who blew .572 - more than 11 times the legal .05 limit - in Orange in 2002.
She had just dropped her children at school.
