More Forced Blood Draws Without a Warrant

According to KVUE News, if the Williamson County District Attorney gets his way, the circumstances under which law enforcement can force a DWI suspect to submit to a blood draw will be vastly increased.

If passed, Senate Bill 261 will allow officers to force blood draws on people who have previously been arrested (not necessarily convicted) of driving while intoxicated with child passenger, intoxication assault, and intoxication manslaughter as well as people with two previous arrests (again, convictions are not necessary) for DWI.
