Most people don’t know what a super extreme DUI is, and neither did we until an Arizona man recorded a blood-alcohol content level of .328 percent, which is enough to send him into a coma.

Scott Jarc, 52, was arrested around 4am Monday by Mohave County officials.

The Topock resident may now be facing four DUI charges but he is lucky to be alive after allegedly getting behind the wheel.

In the early hours of Monday morning, cops stopped Jarc after he was allegedly speeding.

Deputies say they could smell the odor of alcohol as they approached Jarc’s car. He confessed to drinking earlier.

Jarc conducted standard field sobriety tests and was arrested. The tests later revealed his blood alcohol concentration (BAC) to be .328 percent.

The national legal limit for driving is .08 per cent.

Jarc was charged with DUI with a blood-alcohol concentration over .08 percent and has since been released from jail.

In January he was charged on four misdemeanour charges, including harassing phone calls. None of the January charges were driving related.
