Arizona Cops Allowed To Draw Blood In DUI / Drunk Driving Cases

December 23, 2009

As reported previously in this blog, some states are training police officers in drawing blood in DUI / Drunk Driving cases in order to help streamline DUI / Drunk Driving prosecutions. A recent ruling by an Arizona Appellate Court in Tuscon upheld police officers practice of drawing blood from suspects at the scene of DUI / Drunk Driving arrests. The court turned away the constitutional challenges that were raised in appeals where the blood draws were done by the police.

The court held that the police officers were trained phlebotomists and the procedures they used were reasonable.

Arizona has become a leading state in the training, use and practice of police officers drawing blood in DUI / Drunk Driving cases.

As reported previously, Arizona is training law enforcement agencies in other states on police officers drawing blood at the scene of arrests.
