Minn. Appeals Court says warrant needed for urine test in DWI case


A three-judge panel of the Minnesota Court of Appeals on Monday threw out the conviction of a Minnesota man who refused to submit to a urine test after he was stopped by police on suspicion of drunken driving.

The appellate court ruled that police needed a warrant if they wanted a sample of Ryan Mark Thompson’s urine to prove he was driving drunk.

Thompson, 41, of Owatonna, was arrested in April 2012 on suspicion of driving under the influence.
