OMAHA, Neb. — Sarpy County deputies said they arrested a woman whose blood-alcohol level registered higher than five times the legal limit for drivers.

Deputies arrested Denise Thomson, 25, of Elkhorn, after they received a number of calls about an impaired driver on Interstate 80 Thursday afternoon.

In a news release, Sarpy County Sheriff Jeff Davis said his office got calls about a teal vehicle going west that appeared to have children inside. Deputies chased the vehicle at low speeds for a few minutes before pulling the driver over at mile marker 431, the release said.

Sarpy County deputies said they performed a field sobriety test on Thomson, then took her to the Sarpy County Jail, where her blood-content tested at 0.415 percent. Davis told KETV NewsWatch 7 he believes that is the highest blood-alcohol reading he’s seen in his career.

Over five times the legal limit. This woman should have been in a coma if not dead.

The story gets better.

An 8-year-old child in the vehicle was determined to be a ward of the Department of Health and Human Services, the news release said. The child wasn’t harmed and was later turned over to her foster parents.


Thomson works for Beneficial Behavior Health in Omaha provides transporation to DHHS, the release said. Beneficial said Thomson has been suspended, and it is cooperating with DHHS.

Where was Thomson’s oversight or are drivers routinely allowed to drive drunk. Beneficial Behavior Health has some explaining to do, but first I name them today’s Knucklehead of the Day.

Note- I did a google search for Beneficial Behavior Health. They COULD be a company named Beneficial Behavioral Health Services Inc which is based out of Omaha also.
