DWI suspect allegedly set fire to cop car

A suspected DUI driver allegedly set fire to a cop car as he was being pulled over. The 31-year-old driver was arrested after hitting a pole in a 7-eleven parking lot and then striking a vehicle on US 19.

When pulled over, police said that he was intoxicated and they put in the back of a cop car in order to investigate the scene. As police looked over the scene, they noticed smoke coming from the vehicle. They removed the DUI suspect and concluded that he had set fire to a traffic vest. The man was carrying a lighter but said that the fire was unintentional.

Dallas Police fight for 'blood draws' for suspected DWI charges

The Dallas Police Department has been holding ‘No Refusal’ Weekends for holiday weekends where heavy drinking is suspected, but police now want this to be the main evidence in all DWI charges.

During a ‘no refusal’ weekend a person that is pulled over for suspicion of drunk driving has a choice to breath into a breathalyzer and if they say no, and there is probable cause, a nurse can draw their blood.

Police want blood testing to be the primary evidence in DWI cases because they feel that they are more accurate and because a blood samples allow police to test for more than alcohol, like illegal drugs. There is controversy over this mandatory testing because some feel it violates people right and is unreasonable search and seizure.
