Ely, Minnesota Woman With .24 Blood Alcohol Level Too Drunk To Be Booked0
One of the most fun aspects of going to jail is getting to pose for the camera. All the while, you just know that your friends, family members and haters are going to see your mugshot soon enough. Wouldn’t you love to find a way to skip that procedure? Now you can! Just follow in suit of the Ely woman, who was arrested with a 0.24 blood alcohol concentration.
On Wednesday, the Duluth News Tribune announced that the Minnesota State Patrol had unveiled the results of their two-week crackdown on drunk drivers. The highlight of the report was an Ely woman with a blood alcohol level three times over the legal limit. When pulled over by officers, the drunk driver admitted she was behind the wheel, because her boyfriend was too drunk to drive.
Unfortunately, her condition was likely far worse. The woman was so drunk that she was unable to cooperate with the booking agents. This led to police placing the woman in a jail cell, until she was able to sober up enough to finish the booking process. Overall, the Minnesota State Patrol arrested 17 drivers that had a blood alcohol level of 0.30 or higher.
A man in Fillmore County topped them all with a score of 0.38. That suspect was arrested on U.S. Highway 52 while driving an SUV hauling a boat. Concerned citizens called the police to report that the man’s SUV and boat were swerving in and out of traffic. The 17-day enforcement period took place from August 18 to September 3.
During that period of time, officers arrested 1,370 individuals. Last year, they arrested 1,351. Another notable arrest from the period included a man in Rice County who led police on a six-mile pursuit. After Knievel win finally stopped, he was arrested for his 10th DWI. In another strike of coincidence, one driver in Minneapolis was arrested for their second DWI offense in two years. And, both arrests were made by the same officer.
