DA says Blood Warrant Decision Not a Big Deal

La Crosse county district attorney Tim Gruenke says he remains unruffled by a Supreme Court ruling on mandatory warants for blood tests for on unconsenting drunk drivers.  This week-end, La Crosse police for the first time had to call a judge in the early morning to get a warrant for a blood draw of a six time drunk driver.  It was because the driver refused the test.  Have to get a warrant in that case, the court says.  But those cases aren't going to happen very often, says Gruenke

In fact, Gruenke only expects to see a couple per week that require police to get a warrant.
