Supreme Court Considers Warrant Needed for Blood Test

Friday, January 11, 2013 - 10:44am

The U.S. Supreme Court is considering whether police can order a blood test for drunk driving suspects without a warrant. The court was clearly divided in oral arguments on Wednesday after considering the appeal of Tyler McNeely, who was stopped for speeding in Missouri, and police say he failed several sobriety tests, refused to take a breathalyzer test and was given a blood test without a warrant, despite his objections. State courts were subsequently divided over whether the test could be admitted evidence and prompting the Supreme Court appeal.
