Washington Woman Gets 0.50 Percent Breathalyzer Reading

By admin

A Pierce County, Washington woman registered a breathalyzer reading of 0.50 percent last month. Two hours after her arrest, Rebecca G. Lingbloom submitted to a blood alcohol test which showed she had a BAC more than six times the legal limit for DUI in Washington.

A state medical technician said such a BAC “would certain kill most people.”

Technicians are required to reanalyze a blood sample showing such a rare blood alcohol level.

Not surprisingly, Lingbloom was found passed out behind the wheel of her car after she had allegedly nearly hit a pedestrian. She was released on bail after enrolling in a six-month treatment program for alcohol abuse.
