Man Drives Children With .531 BAC Level


Passion

Recommended Posts

A Davenport man was arrested shortly after midnight Saturday when he was found in a parked car with his two children and a blood-alcohol content level nearly seven times the legal limit.

 

William Z. Dixon, 30, of 620 W. 16th St., was charged with two counts of child endangerment after he allegedly blew a .531 on a portable breathalyzer test. The legal limit for driving in Iowa is .08.

 

Davenport police were called to the Sav-A-Lot at 401 E. Locust St. on a disturbance report and allegedly saw Dixon sitting in his vehicle and shutting off his ignition.

 

Dixon had his 10-year-old in the back seat of the vehicle and his 8-year-old in the front seat, police said. They gave him the portable breathalyzer test at 12:15 a.m.

 

The children allegedly told police that Dixon had driven them to the store. Dixon was out on bond Monday.

 

The blood-alcohol content level measures the milligrams of alcohol per 100 milliliters of blood.

 

Many health sources say that it takes a person with a high tolerance to reach a blood alcohol content level of .50. At that level people may stop breathing, slip into a coma or die.

Obviously, this scumbag is used to drinking that much.

 

He should have his children taken away from him.
