    This 0.2% Blood Alcohol level - how is this known?

    As many have said, this would add to the pile of stuff that would "not make her look good" in court.

    But as far as I know, that would be something that is "privileged medical information", that if released could put the person releasing it in VERY hot water professionally (and even civilly/criminally?). I can't imagine a hospital or physician releasing that, they would be well-trained in patient privacy issues to not make that mistake.

    So, does anyone know where this came from (reference to primary source, or even reputable secondary source, like Florio ?

    It was in an article that someone posted. I don't remember the article or who posted.

    Btw, Florio is NOT a reputable source.

    According to Cansino, authorities told him the woman's blood alcohol level was above 0.20 percent more than 10 times the legal limit for drivers younger than 21 in Georgia and more than twice the limit for older motorists.

    "Cansino ... attorney for the nightclub ... says he was told by authorities that the blood alcohol level of the alleged victim was ... above 0.2%...".

    I paraphrased the rest of that article. Hard for me to understand all this ... why would an attorney for the nightclub freely offer evidence that might get his client investigated for serving alcohol to a minor? And like I asked before, if no charges have been filed, did the person doing the telling have a right to release that patient information?

    This whole thing has a very "weird" aspect about it. I agree with those that say it's likely Ben won't be convicted of anything.

    Of course that's not the same as saying life will go on for Ben and the Steelers as if nothing happened on March 5 ...

    isn't the legal limit for a person under 21 0.00?

    As far as verifying her blood alcohol levels, you may have answered your own question as she was
