In July, Stanley Kobierowski of Providence, Rhode Island was arrest for drunk driving after crashing his vehicle into a highway message board on Interstate 95. Pleading no contest, on Friday Kobierowski was sentenced to one year of probation, 40 hours of community service, a $500 fine, and a one year suspension of his driving privileges.
Though he technically refrained from admitting guilt, Kobierowski’s nolo contendere plea did little by way of creating an allusion of innocence. According to the arresting authorities, at the time of Kobierowski’s accident, his BAC was off the charts. Initial breathalyzer readings recorded Kobierowski’s BAC at .489, while a second testing yielded a .491 – both numbers well over Rhode Island’s .08 limit. Amazed that he was still able to function, the officers admit Kobierwoski’s readings are the highest the state has ever recorded – for someone who wasn’t dead.
