Although Iowa City police believe Levi Carter was too drunk to drive when they arrested him Friday night, they will never know just how drunk. Police said Carter, 28, first blew a .467 percent reading on the Breathalyzer test before the testing instrument simply read “HI,” KCCI-TV reported.
The officers who witnessed Carter’s alleged Breathalyzer-busting BAC initially came to his home after a passenger in the suspect’s vehicle reported that he may have been too drunk to drive. This was after Carter allegedly drove 55 mph in a 25 mph zone before crashing his car, KCRG.com reported.
Police said Carter kept talking to people who weren’t there, smelled strongly of alcohol and could barely stand up.

McCarthy left her Santa Fe residence, then came back and changed into lingerie. The outfit was accessorized by a silver handgun placed in her vagina, with which she began to have “inner course,” [sic] according to the affidavit.
While cleaning the chamber, McCarthy reportedly posed the question, “Who is crazy, you or me?” before pulling out the gun and pointing it at her boyfriend’s head, the Albuquerque Journal reported.
