Bend Police tried something new last Friday night, free blood-alcohol breath tests at a popular downtown bar. They just released the results. Police officers and volunteers conducted the event at Boondocks, at 70 NW Newport Ave.   Lt. Paul Kansky says the intoxilyzer test measures the amount of alcohol in a person’s blood system, being a measurement of their level of intoxication; the higher the percentage of alcohol in the blood, the higher the impairment. The legal limit of blood alcohol content in Oregon is .08. That means anyone with a blood alcohol content of .08 or higher, driving a vehicle while impaired, is committing the crime of Driving Under the Influence of Intoxicants.  A total of 65 intoxilyzer tests were administered between 8 p.m. and 1 a.m. The results: 38 participants resulted in under .080 that's about 58% and the rest tested over that. The highest test was point .258 more than three times the legal limit.
