On 25 March he was arrested and found to have a breath reading of 210mg. The legal limit is 35mg.

B.A.C.

I think the conversion works out to somewhere between "almost in a coma" and "dead". If you think about 210/35 = 6 times the legal limit ... that's 0.48 in Ontario and presumably higher in Scotland.

35 micrograms/ 100mL of breath = 80mg/100mL of blood... same as here.

Most of Europe has lower limits than here.

Now, this could be an urban legend of sorts, but I heard of this Czech dude, who got pulled over by the police in his homeland and was asked to blow. The meter indicated twice the legal limit, while the driver swore he hasn't touched a drop of alcohol in 3 years! It later turned out that he was a reformed beeroholic, with a substantial yeast build-up in his bowels. It was that yeast that kept on producing it's own, small quantities of alcohol within his body and releasing it into the bloodstream. Good hook-up, but is that really possible?

Yeast doens't produce alcohol, it prduces carbon dioxide, hence it being used for making fluffy dough.

Depends on the yeast.

Saccharomyces cerevisiae is a species that produces lots of alcohol as waste, in addition to CO2... they ain't all that bright, however, eating so much and producing so much alcohol as waste, they kill themselves. Kind of like humans.

Notice the name? First part of it means "sugar", and the last part means "beer".
