SHERIFF, does deputy have a drinking problem?

Sun-Times (Jonathan Lipman):
A Cook County sheriff's deputy [Shirley Banks, 40, of Calumet City] who had more than five times the legal limit of alcohol in her system has been charged with aggravated drunken driving for a near-fatal crash last week.

I'm thinking the legal limit is 0.08%. Five times 0.08% equals 0.40%. This is pretty close to the max a human being can achieve before death.

Banks had to practice to achieve this level of tolerance. Her peers and supervisors had to notice her drinking issues. This was not her first alcohol abuse incident.

I suspect the Cook County Sheriff's Department covers for deputy sheriffs doing bad stuff.
