(La Porte County, IN) - A Chicago area man spent Christmas in the La Porte County Jail.
After wrecking his vehicle, La Porte County Police said the blood alcohol test results were practically off the charts. Officers found his 2012 Kia slightly in a ditch about 8 p.m. on Christmas Eve on State Road 39 near U.S 20. Fortunately, there were no injuries.
66-year old Michael Fec of Western Springs, Illinois, claimed he had been drinking wine. His alleged blood alcohol level was .47%, nearly six times the .08% legal BAC limit.
According to police, Fec was taken to Northwest Health to have a blood sample taken to test his alcohol consumption level, and he couldn’t walk without assistance from a sheriff’s deputy.
