You remember Kevin Grady, don’t you? Back in July of 2008 he was found passed out behind the wheel of his GMC Yukon Denali at 2 am on a Grand Rapids, Michigan street corner. At that time he jumped into the Top Ten of our World Famous BadJocks BAC Rankings (not to be confused with the notoriously inaccurate BCS Rankings) after blowing an impressive blood alcohol concentration of .281% . Now, a little over two years later the now former Wolverine was arrested for DUI again, less than two miles from where his first arrest occurred. This time though, Kevin outdid himself and blew a .30% BAC, a level at which most people aren’t alive, much less driving.
On the plus side, Grady could also be one of the first persons in the State of Michigan punished under the new Super Drunk Law (seriously, that’s what it’s called) that throws additional penalties for those whose BAC is twice the legal limit (.17%). What about someone whose BAC is nearly double the double limit? Wouldn’t that make them SUPER Super Drunk? Seems like there’s no additional incentive for excellence past the .17% level in this law. What is America coming to these days!
Here’s more on the story from the Grand Rapids Press:
The former East Grand Rapids High School and University of Michigan player blew a 0.30 when authorities charged Grady with second-offense operating under the influence last month. A second test alleges a 0.29 intoxication level, files show. A ticket issued upon Grady’s 10:24 p.m. arrest shows he was stopped by Grandville Officer Darin Rietman in the area of 28th Street and Dixie Avenue SW. The stop near the Grandville and Wyoming city line is about two miles from the corner of 44th Street and Byron Center Avenue SW where Grady was arrested in July 2008 for his first offense.
