Can the police force you to draw blood?

While breathalyzer is the most popular method for police to determine if someone is driving under the influence, many believe that blood tests will provide a more satisfying result. Aside from the multiple issues plaguing breathalyzers, the police do not need the suspect conscious to draw their blood before taking it to the crime lab.

Many residents often question this method as they believe it is morally and legally wrong to take someone’s blood to test it for DUI without consent. However, Florida does have specific guidelines that showcase instances where it is all right to do this. It is necessary to be aware of these circumstances when preparing your defense so you can potentially minimize any DUI charges.
