Re: “Criminal minds: racial profiling in Alamance County

Kendrick Carroll commented above that police "usually let them go on scene because they have no license, which means they won't consent to blood toxicology. Means no evidence, no conviction. Someone of any other color your ass is in jail". That is nonsense. North Carolina law allows officers to request a search warrant based on probable cause of DUI. With such a warrant, a suspect's blood may be drawn--regardless of consent and by force if necessary-- for the purpose of determining blood alcohol content or the presence of intoxicating drugs. Furthermore, an officer may compel blood testing WITHOUT a search warrant if there are exigent circumstances that any delay may result in the loss of evidence. Possessing a license has nothing to do with it. John Does are arrested, booked and held pending bail all the time.
