As per the Nicole "Lilly" Lalime Act (posted previously http://www.texanstalk.com/forums/sho...4&postcount=15, which permits the police to take MADATORY blood draws without a warrant in these situations:

Quote:
“Officers at the scene believed alcohol was a contributing factor in the crash; therefore, Price-Brent was asked to perform field sobriety tests. Based on the results of the tests, along with the officer’s observations and conversations with Price-Brent, he was arrested for driving while intoxicated. He was transported to an area hospital for a mandatory blood draw. Once it was learned that the passenger of his vehicle had died as a result of the crash, Price-Brent was booked into the Irving City Jail on one count of intoxication manslaughter.” ~ statement from the Irving Police Department.

Evidently, a more extensive history related to driving responsibility issues:


Quote:
This is not the first incident of drunk driving with Dallas Cowboys Josh Brent. On February 21, 2009, he was stopped by a police officer in Urbana, Illinois. He wasn’t a Dallas Cowboy then, but a defensive tackle for the Illinois Illini. At the time of his detainment, he was driving on a suspended license. There was also a warrant issued for him for failing to appear in court for a previous act of driving under suspended license. On June 2, 2009, Brent plead guilty to a misdemeanor DUI. He was sentenced to two years probation and 60 days in jail. He also paid a fine and completed 200 hours of community service.

Not mentioned previously by most media..........SPEEDING also accompanied his previous DUI:

Quote:
Brent pleaded guilty to a DUI charge in 2009 after he was arrested for speeding while driving under the influence with a suspended license, according to Champaign County, Ill., court records obtained by The Associated Press.
