Can police order a warrantless blood alcohol test?

Wisconsin case law has established that law enforcement officials can force a drunk driving suspect to provide a blood sample without first obtaining a warrant in exigent circumstances. The reason behind this ruling has to do with the imminent destruction of evidence. As the body metabolizes alcohol, it removes it from the bloodstream, lowering a person's blood alcohol content.

Wisconsin woman pulled over on suspicion of drunk driving

To determine whether a particular driver has been drinking, a police officer must initiate a traffic stop. In order to pull someone over, however, the officer must have a reason, whether the driver was exceeding the speed limit, failed to stop at a stop sign, or had a brake light out. But the legality of this initial stop is essential, because the evidence of the driver's potential intoxication depends on it.

Some people in those cities don't even own a car or have to worry about drunk driving arrests with the mass transit systems that they have in place. In Wisconsin, many establishments are miles away from home and jumping on the subway is certainly not an option when your blood alcohol level is above the legal limit for driving.
