Oregon Man Had .77 BAC

(Madras, OR) -- An Oregon man is in the record books for a rather untoward achievement. The man, unnamed pending criminal charges, had a blood alcohol content of point-seven-seven, more than nine times the legal limit. He was arrested Friday after a short police chase ended with a car crash about 125 miles southeast of Portland. While there are no official records, the man's BAC seems to be far and away the highest. A woman, also from Oregon, came close in 2007 with a point-seven-two.
