An Indiana man previously arrested with a 0.552 percent blood-alcohol level was arrested after he was found sprawled on a Valparaiso, Ind., street, police said.

James Henderson, 28, of South Haven was arrested about 7 a.m. Friday. This time he had a blood-alcohol level of 0.297 percent, police said.

Police made the arrest while responding to an argument between Henderson and an unidentified woman.

When he was arrested March 25 with the staggering blood alcohol level — also while lying on the side of the road — police said it could have been a record for Porter County.

Individuals tend to fall into a coma at about 0.40 percent and death is possible, according to guidelines by Indiana University.
