NPD charge woman with driving drunk, dangerously drunk

Yesterday afternoon, the Norwood police stopped a woman driving a van on the Norwood Lateral and administered a field sobriety test. According to the Enquirer, she registered a .339 on the test, which is more than four times the legal Ohio limit of .08. We have no idea how reliable field sobriety testing is, but looking at this chart for blood alcohol concentration (BAC) tests results, .339 is in the “Death Possible” range. There’s no telling how many lives the NPD may have saved yesterday by stopping this woman, including her own life.
