.223 Isn't the Caliber... It's His Blood Alcohol Level

That is a few cocktails. Cop accused of fatal DUI was 3 times legal limit - Chicago Breaking News

I guess he was drinking alone, because surely someone would have noticed a guy that drunk getting behind the wheel of a car.
Edward Stapinski, 34, had a blood alcohol level of .223, Assistant State's Attorney John Carroll said at a bond hearing in the Bridgeview courthouse today.

Stapinski declined to take a Breathalyzer test at the scene of the Sunday night crash but was given a blood test at the hospital, Carroll said. Police officers at the scene described Stapinski as having "bloodshot eyes, slurred speech and a strong smell of alcohol."
"Reckless" doesn't begin to cover this behavior.
