Rhode Island Arraigns Allegedly Drunkest-Ever Driver

August 6, 2008

A Rhode Island man who authorities say had a blood alcohol level more than six times the legal limit has been arraigned on a drunken driving charge.

Stanley Kobierowski, of North Providence, appeared briefly in Providence District Court on Friday. He left the courthouse without commenting.

Police say Kobierowski registered a 0.491 blood-alcohol level after he was arrested last month after allegedly driving into a highway message board on Interstate 95 in Providence.

WJAR-TV reported that Kobierowski pleaded not guilty at his arraignment and was released on personal recognizance.

The legal limit in Rhode Island is 0.08.

District Court Judge Michael Higgins scheduled a pretrial conference for next month.
