No, it's not a real thing.
Let's put this in perspective: the legal limit for driving while intoxicated is a BAC of 0.08, meaning this guy had eight times the legal limit in his system. Furthermore, in Iowa state police academy curriculum, officers are taught that a person with a BAC of 0.40 are likely to be in a coma. This guy has 1.5 times the amount needed to kill a person, and he was still driving. Talk about holding your liquor!
