Crowley man arrested after driving with four times legal limit blood alcohol

A Crowley Lake man driving a Toyota Tundra was arrested on suspicion of driving drunk on Sunday, April 13 after he was found stopped in the middle of the road on Willow Brook Road in Crowley Lake, according to the California Highway Patrol.

When the 52-year-old man was contacted by law enforcement at about 6:44 p.m., a sobriety test revealed he had a blood alcohol level four times the legal limit.

The man was arrested, his driver license was suspended and he was booked at the Mono County Jail.

Lieutenant R. D. Cohan, commander of the CHP's Bridgeport Area said in a recent news release, "Most medical professionals agree that alcohol levels of between .35% and .40% result in unconsciousness and death. It's is hard to imagine this individual was driving a car at a .32% blood alcohol level. I am very happy CHP personnel were able to locate (the resident) and ultimately assure he has the privilege to wake up tomorrow morning."
