People who are arrested with suspicion of driving under the influence of alcohol may be found to have blood alcohol concentration levels exceeding the legal limit. In Wisconsin, those found driving with a BAC of 0.08 percent or higher are considered intoxicated and are arrested for DUI. Although the consequences of a DUI can be devastating, another category of DUI offenders, known as the super intoxicated, face more severe penalties in the court of law.
One such Illinois man was driving through Wisconsin with a BAC of approximately 0.23 percent, almost four times over the legal limit, when he collided with two vehicles. The man was highly impaired due to the extensive amount of alcohol in his system and was driving southbound in the northbound lane of the highway.
