North Liberty, IA (The Weekly Vice) - Justin Clark, a 24-year-old Iowa man, has been jailed after he was caught driving drunk at nearly eight times the legal limit.
According to police, officers were dispatched at to the area of Red Barn drive at 10:15 p.m. after receiving a complaint that a motorist was "all over the road," and striking several curbs along his path.
Officers arrived on the scene to find Clark's vehicle in the front yard of a North Liberty resident's home. A resident at the address flagged down the officer and pointed them towards Clark's vehicle.
When officers asked Clark to step out of the vehicle, he was unable to stand or walk. Officers attempted to perform a field sobriety test, however Clark was unable to comply with the officer's commands.
When officers asked Clark where he thought he was, he stated that he was at home. When asked what day of the week it was, Clark replied "Three, but now it's four."
Clark was administered a preliminary breath test that showed his blood alcohol level to be .486 or more than five times the legal limit. He was then transferred to University of Iowa Hospital where his blood alcohol level was measured to be .627 (nearly eight times the legal limit.)
"It's just amazing (that) the person was conscious to be that high," said Police Chief Jim Warkentin. "Most people don't make it above 0.3, they end up passing out."
Clark was booked into jail and charged with driving under the influence.
