Travis County approves drawing DWI suspects’ blood at jail

May 27th, 2010 by Kyle Lowe

According to an article in the Austin American Statesman, blood could soon be drawn at Central Booking at the Travis County Jail after county commissioners voted 4-0 to approve changes to an agreement between Travis County and the City of Austin. The Austin City Council is expected to consider the changes later this month. If the changes are accepted, Austin police officials will solicit bids for the phlebotomy services with a potential June start date for the new protocol. A law went into effect last year that expanded the circumstances in which blood draws or breath tests from DWI suspects would be required. Instances where the victims are injured and transported for medical care and where there is a child present in the vehicle of the suspect are now cause for mandatory blood draws and/or breath tests. Given these new guidelines, The Travis County Sheriff’s Office and Austin Police Department estimate that an additional 300-400 blood draws will be required on top of the 400-500 that occur each year. An experienced DWI attorney is crucial if you have been charged with drunk driving in Austin, or the surrounding counties. Take your fear out of the process by contacting Austin based DWI attorney, Kyle Lowe at (512) 750-5693.

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.
