MADISON, Wis. - A University of Wisconsin-Madison student was found heavily intoxicated stumping in a downtown parking ramp early Friday, police said.
The UW-Madison Police Department said officers made contact with a 25-year-old man who was alone, stumbling as he walked up a stairwell in the Lake Street Ramp at 301 N. Lake St. at 2:15 a.m.
Officers said the man's eyes were watery, glassy and bloodshot, he smelled of intoxicants and was having a hard time standing. His preliminary blood alcohol content was .338, more than four times the legal limit for driving.
UWPD police warned citizens that drinking too much isn't just dangerous behind the wheel. UWPD police Chief Susan Riseling said that over-consuming alcohol can put students at risk of becoming the victim of a crime and has health risks.
"We're not talking about just a couple drinks here," Riseling said. "We're talking about deadly levels of alcohol being consumed."
Police said if students choose to drink alcohol they should do so legally, in moderation and take care of friends. If a friend has had too much to drink, call for help, don't leave them alone.
The man was taken to detox for his own safety, police said.Police: Student's BAC more than 4 times legal limit
