New Year’s Eve rule #1 – Don’t drink and drive. These days cabs are cheap and Uber is everywhere. Cabs and Uber are certainly cheaper than hiring us to represent you. There is no reason that you should get behind the wheel while and drive while intoxicated and risk harming yourself or others. But if you do, and you get caught, you will likely be subjected to Galveston County’s “no refusal weekend” program.
During a no refusal weekend, judges, prosecutors, and nurses will be on standby to sign warrants and draw your blood if you are suspected of drinking and driving your vehicle or motorcycle.
If you were pulled over by a police officer who suspected that you may be under the influence of drugs or alcohol, you may have been subjected to a blood draw.
Just because the state got a warrant for your blood doesn’t mean it is automatically admissible in court; that’s just the beginning of the fight.
