Miller County authorities now have a new way to conduct DWI investigations. The new method makes it much easier for officers to attain search warrants when administering blood draws from suspected drivers.
The Supreme Court is considering whether police must get a warrant before ordering a blood test on an unwilling drunken-driving suspect.
The justices heard arguments Wednesday in a case involving a disputed blood test from Missouri. Police stopped a speeding, swerving car and the driver, who had two previous drunken-driving convictions, refused to submit to a breath test to measure the alcohol level in his body.
