Default How much trouble is this guy in?

While working at the Thunderfest this past weekend on Sat. my buddy went out on his patrol boat after they opened the river to go to the Rooster tail from the Belle Isle pits,got pulled over by the Coast Guard at Belle Isle. He blew a .22 blood alcohol level, they let his friend idle it back he was'nt drinking. How much trouble is he in, I've heard they are a little more lenient at Detroit's 36 Disrict Court. Anyone know ?

After the racing was finished the people working at Belle Isle side had a barbeque and beer party for the security, patrol people, etc. Everyone seemed in control. The USCG was not of the same opinion however when later people went across the river to the awards banquet, some faired better than others.

Trouble?....That's just an afterthought.

1)Lucky No one else was killed/injured/boat destroyed
2)Lucky he was not killed/injured/boat destroyed

Consequences should be of an appropriate magnitude.

Dude, in all honesty 0.22 is way too fugged-up!

How do you get .22 on beer at a bar-b-cue? That's some serious pounding. Was it that new Crack Beer?

Jeesh,

Was he still swigging when they tested him and he accidentally blew a mouthful of liquid beer into the meter?

I personally watched an acquaintance go comatose, choke on puke, and get hauled to the ER with alcohol poisoning. He tested a 0.25

Yikes, if you commit to patroling it's commiting to not drinking also.
