Supreme Court Ruling Protects Celebs Who Drink and DrivePublished by on Thursday, April 18, 2013 at 10:00 am.
Celebs will love a ruling by the U.S. Supreme Court that might save them future from DUI arrests. The court just deemed it unconstitutional for police officers to forcibly draw blood from a DUI suspect… unless they get a warrant.
So if a driver refuses a breathalyzer, police will have to write up an affidavit. Then the officer will have to get a judge to sign a warrant. And by the time this is all done, the intoxicated driver will have time to possibly sober up enough to where their blood alcohol level drops below the legal limit. Cops do have some wiggle room, though. They can, however, get the blood without a warrant if they can show a judge they had a convincing reason.
Either way,a slew of other celebs (cough! Lindsey Lohan) have a means to beat getting possibly popped for DUI… But if they’re swerving all over the road, well, then the cops have the upper hand. Either way, no one should be drinking and driving!
