Marguerite Engle Provides a Staggering .708 BAC Result

Sturgis, South Dakota. On December 1, 2009, Marguerite Engle, 45, was found in a parked truck next to Interstate 90. The truck had been reported stolen and quickly got the attention of law enforcement. Engle was arrested and then provided an astounding breath alcohol sample of .708. That is nearly NINE TIMES the South Dakota DUI legal limit of .08. Such a high level is life threatening and it really is a miracle she is still alive. While prosecuting DUI cases for Seattle the record BAC sample was just over .500. That individual spent a few nights at Haborview Medical Center before he was allowed booking into jail.

Engle was charged with DUI and possession of marijuana. She is being held without bond in the Meade County Jail.

    She is lucky that she did not die or her liver give out with that much in her system.
