Hello from JustAnswer.

Yes, this would be considered intoxicated. The alcohol level that is considered intoxicated is usually expressed as a percentage, and is typically 0.08%. When the alcohol is reported as mg/dl, it can be converted to percent by shifting the decimal point, so 244 mg/dl is the same as 0.244%, which is three times the threshold for being considered intoxicated.

At a level of 0.244%, many people are asleep or unconscious, but someone that chronically drinks alcohol may be better able to tolerate a level of 0.244%.

If I can provide any additional information, please let me know.
