Leave it to NASCAR driver to have four times the legal limit of booze in his system AND still be trying text and drive at the same time. We’re talking about Michael Annett, who was picked up last week in North Carolina and has now been suspended by the racing league.
Annett’s BAC doesn’t get him the “pole position” in the World Famous BadJocks BAC Rankings, but he does slide in comfortably into the #6 spot, on the outside of the third row. Something tells us he might try to qualify for a better spot sometime in the future.
According to a NASCAR release, in addition to steps being taken by Annett’s team, Rusty Wallace Inc., Annett will be evaluated by a certified substance abuse professional at NASCAR’s discretion and will be subject to random alcohol and drug testing. Annett was charged with DUI, failure to reduce speed, texting while driving and resisting an officer last week. The car he was driving rear-ended another car, which was stopped at a traffic light.
According to the police report, Annett had a blood-alcohol level of .32 – four times the N.C. legal limit of .08.
