Riku Helenius DUI
 
Helenius got caught from DUI in Sweden.

http://www.iltasanomat.fi/urheilu/t/sm-liiga/2276029 (Link is in Finnish)

He's got very bad start this season (8gp 87,34% and 3,06GAA) and and things are going even worse now. The link says that club where Helenius plays, is now thinking couple of days whats gonna happen next..

edit. He's blood alcohol level was 0.03%, legal limit is 0.02%.

The Fear Boners 11-11-2010 01:53 PM

:shakehead Riku, c'mon man.

Going Back to Cally 11-11-2010 02:10 PM

.03 BAC?

Either way with our depth I doubt we see Helenius again.

The Fear Boners 11-11-2010 02:16 PM

.03? Thats like half of a Mich Ultra. Holy ****.

Rschmitz 11-11-2010 02:30 PM

Damn, strict standards over there. You could get .03 by making out with some drunk girls, eating chicken Parmesan with some strong cooking wine, or drinking cough syrup.

Acehawk74 11-11-2010 02:44 PM

That's not drunk. At. All.

To me, that's a non-story. That level is pretty much ridiculous in every way.

cassius 11-11-2010 03:54 PM

0.03?

Seriously?

EverybodyLovesRay 11-11-2010 04:01 PM

Yep its pretty low but law is the law. In Finland limit is 0,05% and is it 0,08% in United States..?

He was on the way to practise at the time..

edit offtopic. Couple days ago Canadian Scott Barney got DUI in Finland and had 0,17% BAC, he got immediately sacked from Finnish SM-Liiga team Saipa.

BadHammy* 11-11-2010 04:10 PM

0.03? Maybe he just had a Ricola... Give me a damn break.

LightningStrikes 11-11-2010 04:43 PM

What's the limit in the US and Canada?

In Germany you lose your driver's license with 0.05 (even if you drive normally) and starting from 0.03 if your driving is suspicious etc.

Tokala 11-11-2010 04:45 PM

No way in hell I move to Europe.

LightningStrikes 11-11-2010 04:54 PM

Found the limits. It seems to be a little more complicated in the US: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Blood_alcohol#Legal_limits

The Fear Boners 11-11-2010 05:08 PM

I'm moving to Norway.

Doctor Drej 11-11-2010 05:33 PM

0.03? :laugh:

Wow, sounds pretty incredible to me, in this country is not a problem, just take some money and give to the policeman and you can go away without any problems. The power of the money still count here!

No matter what the level is he did break the law, it's not acceptable behaviour.

Pentothal 11-12-2010 05:27 AM

Welcome to Sweden.

It sounds like law enforcement in Argentina has a whole other set of problems.

TBFan 11-12-2010 08:18 AM

Think I had a .03 when I got out of bed this morning.

The law is the law. Don't drink and drive.

Nothing beats good old corruption.

Poor Nordic countries...should have it in Argentinian style. I love it how you actually twist it to sound like you're proud of the way things are...

I don't think I'm proud of it, is a big problem in our society, we are accustomed to corruption and I understand for good cause and for bad cause, I don't want to give examples to avoid hurt susceptibilities, things like that happen in all the world, most of it in the government but most of the people can't see it.

joe89 11-12-2010 11:11 AM

Sweden is also one of the few, if not the only country, striving for zero traffic deaths. Gotta start somewhere. You know don't drink and drive, in Sweden that actually means just that.

Tampa22 11-12-2010 11:15 AM

Yes, I know it. Remember that an Argentinian channel make a trip to Sweden to show how things work and how prevent accidents, would be great if we can copy that system and implement here.
