How not to practice law: show up to court with a .337 blood alcohol level

Yesterday I read a story about a man who was arrested for driving under the influence with a .316 alcohol level, when the legal limit is .08 and .350 is considered "lethal."  I thought that someone could function with a .316 level was incredible!

Yet, today the Legal Profession blog is reporting that ... well, take a look:
Gray represented his client in a civil case in Jefferson Circuit Court, ... On the last day of trial, Gray delivered an hour-long closing argument. Gray's demeanor and performance during the argument concerned the trial judge, and after the jury returned its verdict against Gray's client, the trial judge asked Gray to submit to a breathalyzer test. Gray acquiesced and blew a .337 on the breathalyzer. Emergency medical services were called and Gray was taken to a local hospital by ambulance.
Oh, and, by the way, the lawyer was suspended from the practice of law too.
