A Rhode Island man who authorities say had a blood-alcohol level more than six times the legal limit has pleaded not guilty to drunken driving.
WJAR-TV reports that Stanley Kobierowski was released on personal recognizance Friday after appearing in Providence District Court.
Police say Kobierowski registered a blood-alcohol level of 0.491 percent after driving into a message board on Interstate 95 in Providence.
The legal limit in Rhode Island is 0.08 percent. Police say Kobierowski might hold the state record for having the highest blood-alcohol concentration without dying. The Rhode Island Department of Health considers .5 to be fatal
A pretrial conference is scheduled for September 5th.
