Post Alcohol level in air at fraternity party registers on Breathalyzer

Quote:
Police say there was so much alcohol being consumed at a college fraternity party in Maryland the air inside the house registered a .01 on a Breathalyzer.

Officers broke up the party at a house in Bethesda last month.

They say eight people locked themselves in a bathroom while another person jumped out of a second story window in an effort to avoid officers.

(And my second thought was to wonder about how many people were close alcohol poisoning problems at the party ... )

Haha, that's funny.
I'm pretty sure that back in the 80's I got stoned more than once just from walking into a barracks room and breathing the air that my hash smoking Army buddies were creating.

Alcohol is a volatile substance and can achieve a vapor pressure in room air if conditions are right but I've never heard of a house blowing a 0.01.

I don't believe that either, but it sounded funny.

Have you ever heard of the old "copper kettle" used in anesthesia?

It's possible that there was a lot of booze spillage along with a very warm house temperature.
