Minn. Appeals Court says alcohol search warrant can test for drugs in DWI case


A search warrant allowing police to test for alcohol in the blood of a suspected drunken driver also gives them the right to test for drugs without additional signoff, the Minnesota Court of Appeals ruled Monday.

In what is the latest ruling in a variety of legal challenges to blood draws in DWI cases, the three-judge panel ruled in the first case of its kind that search warrants for any additional testing are not necessary once the blood is already taken.
