How did we miss this one? It’s been more than two weeks since former Major League Baseball player and World Series champion Curtis “I’ll Have Another!” Leskanic was arrested and charged with driving drunk with his 5-year-old daughter in the vehicle and eventually blew a .331% BAC, more than four times the legal limit.
According to police, he was found at 8 pm on a Monday night, passed out behind the wheel at an intersection. He told the cops he picked up his young daughter from “practice” but he couldn’t tell them from where.
And yet, that number only puts him in the #5 spot on the World Famous BadJocks BAC Rankings.
So close, and yet so far for Kaylon Williams: his blood alcohol concentration was just under the level that would have landed him in the Top Twenty of the World Famous BadJocks BAC Rankings. A BAC of .228% probably puts him in the Top Five for DUIs in 2011 (and it’s nearly three times the legal limit) but short of the .241% needed these days to make the big board. Williams problem? He allegedly ran after cops pulled his car over. This meant a longer time between his consumption of alcohol and the breathalyzer (unless he was drinking while being chased by the cops which would be tough with a K-9 unit on your tail) and also put additional strain on his body, possibly expelling more of the booze out of his blood stream.
Williams can now only dream of what might have been.
A potential starter for the #Cardinals appears to have stumbled . . . quite a bit, actually. At 0.186%, Darius Ashley’s blood alcohol concentration is more than twice the legal limit of .08, but no where near enough to make it into the World Famous BadJocks BAC Rankings.
This is also not Ashley’s first run-in with booze: Back in December of 201, he was found passed out in the drive-thru window of a fast food place and blew a 0.192 BAC that night, and was subsequently suspended from the Beef O’Brady’s Bowl game.
Does the Cubs curse follow you around even AFTER you have left the team? For Mark Grace the answer is apparently YES, as he was arrested for drunk driving in Scottsdale, Arizona over Memorial Day Weekend. Now exact BAC is listed at this time, just that he was over the legal limit of .08%.
Lloy J. Ball may have won a gold medal with the American men’s volleyball team, but his drinking is not up to international competition levels. At o.13% BAC he’s nearly twice the legal limit of .08%, but nowhere near the .23% minimum needed to crack the top twenty of the BadJocks World Famous BAC Rankings. And, also, getting arrested for DUI in rural Indiana is just tacky, don’t you think?
If minor league hockey player Elgin “I’ll Have Another” Reid wasn’t already suspended from the Florida Everblades team, he will be now. Earlier this week Reid came off the bench during a hockey fight (it’s okay to fight in hockey, you just have to wait your turn) to pummel an opponent who knocked out his team captain and has been suspended by the league five games as a result. (Watch video of the brawl here.)
Apparently, Reid went out to celebrate that his little “time out” and ended up on a south Florida road at 2:45 in the morning, slumped over the wheel of his still idling pick-up truck, which the police found strangely intriguing. Not surprisingly, cops gave him a breathalyzer and the highest reading they got was .184% BAC, more than twice the legal limit of .08%. (Maybe Reid needs to start looking for detox clinics in Florida?) .
Now, that’s a lot of drinking, but no where near what Reid needed to crack the Top Twenty of the World Famous BadJocks BAC Rankings . . . although it does make him the “leader in the clubhouse” so far in 2011. Congratulations Elgin! Good luck making the Florida Prison Hockey Team.
Details on the story from the Naples News:
Florida Everblades defenseman Elgin Reid was arrested Tuesday morning in Punta Gorda and charged with DUI. Reid, 23, was approached by a deputy on patrol at 2:45 a.m. at the intersection of Yacht Club Boulevard and Burnt Store Road after he was spotted slumped over the wheel of his idling pick-up truck.
According to an arrest report, Reid failed a field sobriety test and two subsequent breathalyzer tests that were conducted after he was transported to the Charlotte County Jail.
Reid’s first breathalyzer test showed a blood-alcohol level of .165 and his second showed a level of .184. The legal limit in Florida is .08.
