St. Louis City to become a “No refusal zone” for DWIs

St. Louis City will be holding a press conference on Monday December 30, 2013 to announce that it is becoming a “No Refusal Zone.”

This means if you are pulled over for a DWI and refuse the breath test, you will likely be required to take a blood test. Due to  recent US Supreme Court decision, this will require a warrant each and every time a suspect refuses a breath test in order to obtain a blood test. These warrants are required to comply with 4th amendment protections against unlawful search and seizure.
