MAPLE HILL, Kan. (KAKE) - An eastern Kansas sheriff's office says an erratic driver who was stopped after a brief pursuit Wednesday night had a blood alcohol level four times the legal limit. 

According to the Wabaunsee County Sheriff's Office, "911 lines erupted" at around 9:10 p.m. with reports of a "wildly erratic driver" on I-70 near Maple Hill. The vehicle's headlights were not on and it nearly collided with a dozen vehicles. 

The vehicle failed to stop for a responding officer, who initiated a brief pursuit. The sheriff's office said two Kansas Highway Patrol troopers and a St. Marys officer responded to assist. 

The driver, 59-year-old Alex Parker, had a blood alcohol level of .321, which is just over four times the legal limit of .08. He was booked on multiple charges including felony driving under the influence and flee and elude.

The 57-year-old passenger, Dewayne Coffman, was arrested and transported to Shawnee County on a warrant. 

".321BAC is so astronomically high even Keith Richards or an actual Astronaut sippin on a Martini through a straw in SPACE would be like... 'Bruh," the sheriff's office said on Facebook. 

"THESE ARE THE DANGERS out there folks. If it were not for the swift & resolute actions of your Kansas Peace Officers, this so very easily could have been a multi vehicular mass casualty event &/or fatal collision. If you drink & drive, you will lose, we assure you."
