Sixteen Blood Draws in Austin PD’s Latest ‘No Refusal’ Enforcement

March 27th, 2009 by Kyle Lowe

Last week we warned that those in attendance for SXSW should be careful to avoid getting an Austin DWI, as there was no doubt police would be on high alert. Turns out 25 people were arrested between 9pm Friday and 5am Saturday, according to KVUE News.

It was the latest “No Refusal” enforcement from the Austin Police Department, the program where if a driver is pulled over for an Austin DWI, they may not decline to take a breathalyzer test. And if the driver says “no,” the Austin police officer can get a warrant for their blood. The last “No Refusal” enforcement happened on Super Bowl Sunday, when 21 Austin DWI arrests were made.

According to KVUE, nine out of the 25 people arrested for an Austin DWI last weekend gave a breath sample, and the remaining 16 had search warrants issued on them so that APD could draw blood samples. Since the average number of Austin DWI blood draws on other “No Refusal” nights is 25, police noted that 16 was relatively low.

Austin DWI Update: APD’s ‘No Refusal’ Policy

February 4th, 2009 by Kyle Lowe

While football fans were done watching the big game and out celebrating — or not, depending on who they were rooting for — the Steelers’ win on Sunday night, Austin Police Department officers were watching for drunk drivers.

From 9pm on Sunday until Monday at 5am, APD’s “No Refusal” policy made it so that drivers could not give “no” for an answer when they were pulled over for a suspected DWI in Austin. This meant, essentially, that if a driver said “no” to a breathalyzer test, Austin police officers would get a warrant for their blood.

Austin DWI blood draws are controversial: many are firmly against them, while others believe they’re a necessary step to keep drunk drivers off Austin streets. Plus, in court Austin DWI blood draws help prove whether a driver was intoxicated.

This isn’t the first time the Austin Police Department has instituted the “No Refusal” policy/Austin DWI blood draws. They’ve done it two times previously.

If you’re pulled over for an Austin DWI, you simply must know your rights.  Provide the Austin DWI officer with your driver’s license and proof of insurance, and be sure not to give any incriminating information. If the officer asks you any incriminating questions, be polite but firm in saying that you respectfully decline to answer any questions until you consult with your Austin DWI attorney, Kyle Lowe.

Austin DWI offenses are very serious, and they can be on your driving record for the rest of your life. If you have an Austin DWI offense, it’s imperative that you hire an experienced, competent Austin DWI attorney like Kyle Lowe to be on your side.

Texas Baseball Coach Suspended After DWI Arrest

January 21st, 2009 by Kyle Lowe

Augie Garrido, coach of the University of Texas at Austin baseball team, has been suspended indefinitely without pay because of his Austin DWI arrest. Once school officials gather more information, they’ll decide what to do in regards to his position at the university.

Garrido was stopped near downtown Austin when he was driving a Porsche Cayenne with the headlights off just before 1AM. Garrido failed a field sobriety test and also admitted to having five glasses of wine and being intoxicated. He had apparently spent the evening at J. Black’s on 6th Street and Eddie V.’s on 5th Street, both in the downtown Austin area. He was booked into the Travis County Jail that night.

The Longhorns’ first baseball game is coming up fast on February 20, when they’ll play the University of Illinois-Chicago. The last time Garrido missed a baseball game was back in 2006 when he was suffering from dehydration symptoms. For now, the Longhorns’ associate head coach and pitching coach will be taking over the team.

Garrido is the highest paid college baseball coach, earning a salary of about $800,000. In 2012, Garrido is expected to be the first college coach to make $1 million or more, according to the Austin American-Statesman. Though he has a five-year contracts that says he’d receive $300,000 per year for each year left on his contract should he be dismissed, this stipulation may not apply if he’s fired for breaking UT’s standard of conduct rules.

Austin DWI Arrests: Know Your Rights

Augie Garrido’s DWI arrest is a great example to us all that you need to know your rights when it comes to Austin DWI arrests. Mr. Garrido admitted to the police officer that he was intoxicated. If you are questioned by a police officer and asked incriminating questions, know your rights. Tell the officer that you respectfully decline to provide any answers until you’re able to consult with your Austin attorney, Kyle Lowe.
