Photos: Ten Colorado counties with the drunkest drunk drivers

Yesterday, we posted about the ten Colorado counties with the most DUIs in 2012, using statistics from the NoDUIColorado.org website. But in addition to bust numbers, the site determines the average blood alcohol content of arrestees in each county. That allows us to figure out which county's drunk drivers are the drunkest -- and the worst is at well over double the .08 BAC standard for intoxication. Terrifying. The list includes some outlying, sparsely populated places, but the top spot is taken by one of the metro area's largest. Count them down below.
