FIRST ON 3: Berger’s blood alcohol 0.08 after DWI arrest
WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — New Hanover County Commissioner Brian Berger’s blood alcohol content was at the limit for drivers following his arrest for DWI according to a report from the Wilmington Police Department’s Crime Laboratory obtained by WWAY NewsChannel 3.
According to the report, Berger’s blood alcohol content was 0.08 percent. North Carolina law says it is illegal to drive with a BAC of 0.08 percent or higher.
Court documents show Wilmington Police collected two vials of Berger’s blood just before 4 a.m. on December 18 after an officer pulled Berger over in the 200 block of Market Street in downtown Wilmington. An Evidence/Property Receipt & Chain of Custody form shows police collected one vial of blood for a “DWI blood kit for alcohol testing.” The other was “for additional testing.” A source tells WWAY that second vial was sent to the SBI lab in Raleigh for drug testing.
We hope to talk with Commissioner Berger at this afternoon’s New Hanover County Commission agenda review meeting, which is his first public meeting since his arrest.
