The United States Supreme Court has released its opinion in the warrantless DUI blood draw case that I have blogged about here, here and here. The Court denied prosecutors request to allow for warrantless blood draws in all DUI cases, although it left room for a case by case basis in which they may be allowed. This means that a police officer can’t routinely take a DUI suspect to a hospital for a blood draw whenever that suspect refuses to provide a breath sample.
Here is a link to the Court’s opinion in Missouri v. McNeely.
