OMAHA, Neb. (FOX42KPTM) -- Drinking isn't limited to the weekends, and one arrest Monday night proved just that. One man had so much to drink, he blew five times the legal limit. Records show this was the second DUI he has had in the past four years.
According to Nebraska State Patrol Troopers, his will be one of the top 5 highest blood alcohol concentration's since the beginning 2018. Troopers said the 54-year old driver was going 25 in a 55 near 132nd and dodge and swerving back and forth in the lanes.
Height and weight are taken into account for BAC, and after hearing the man was 176 pounds and 54-years-old, one driving instructor said she's surprised he is alive.
At the Cornhusker Driving School, instructors teach their students with drunk goggles ranging from .08 to .15. According to the Nebraska State Troopers, the person driving behind the vehicle was four times more impaired than what you would see in the goggles.
In her experience, drivers are lucky to have an alternative.
NSP said the driver's license has been taken away and the driver will have to get a breathalyzer device for his car in order to get his license back.
