Cops: Drunk Iowa Driver's Blood Alcohol Level Was Nearly Eight Times Legal Limit

August 14, 2012

An Iowa man arrested for drunk driving registered a blood alcohol level nearly eight times the legal limit, according to court records.

Justin Clark, 24, was collared on July 29 after witnesses called 911 after spotting him driving erratically. When police arrived, the incoherent Clark (pictured above) was at the wheel of his Toyota Yaris revving the vehicle’s engine.

Clark was transported to a local hospital where a blood draw revealed his BAC was a whopping .627 (the legal limit is .08), according to a criminal complaint filed yesterday in Johnson County District Court.

A North Liberty Police Department officer reported that Clark was so intoxicated that he could not exit the car on his own and was unable to walk without assistance.

Asked if he knew what day it was, Clark answered, “3 but now it is 4.”

While Clark’s BAC was initially recorded at .486 via a portable Breathalyzer, the more precise blood test showed that his BAC was actually significantly higher.

Clark is scheduled for a preliminary court hearing on September 4.


  1. Wow, it's a wonder he is still alive.

  2. Hope they throw the book at him.

  3. Day 4 of the binge. What a loser.

  4. As a paramedic student, I'm fascinated by the fact that this guy somehow isn't dead. As a criminal justice student, I hope he gets locked up for endangering so many people's lives.
