DA says Blood Warrant Decision Not a Big Deal
La Crosse county district attorney Tim Gruenke says he remains unruffled by a Supreme Court ruling on mandatory warants for blood tests for on unconsenting drunk drivers. This week-end, La Crosse police for the first time had to call a judge in the early morning to get a warrant for a blood draw of a six time drunk driver. It was because the driver refused the test. Have to get a warrant in that case, the court says. But those cases aren't going to happen very often, says Gruenke
In fact, Gruenke only expects to see a couple per week that require police to get a warrant.
