SHE BLEW A .47

Deana Jarrett, 54, apparently has a problem with alcohol. Last week she was involved in two car crashes in Redmond, Wash. She took a breath test. She registered .47 blood-alcohol content.

According to The Associated Press:
Jarrett was taken to Evergreen Hospital as a precaution following her arrest April 11, the Washington State Patrol said Wednesday. No one was injured in the accidents.

Jarrett blew the .47 on a portable breath tester after she collided with two other vehicles in quick succession, the patrol said. A check of all 356,000 breath tests administered since 1998 in Washington turned up only 35 above .40 -- and none of those was higher than .45.
Like most states, the legal limit in Washington is .08 BAC.

It's a wonder she didn't die from alcohol poisoning. Geesh.
