Forced Catheterization Used In DUI Case

An Indiana man has filed a lawsuit claiming that police forcibly withdrew blood and urine from his body during a drunken driving arrest, WLWT-TV reported. According to the suit, police arrested Jamie Lockard, 53, on suspicion of drunken driving in March.A Breathalyzer test showed he was under the legal limit, but Officer Brian Miller doubted the findings.Lockard and his attorney claim in the suit that police took him to Dearborn County Hospital and forced him to submit to a urine and blood test.Police said they obtained a warrant, but Lockard’s attorney said his client was shackled to a gurney and had a catheter inserted against his will.

What gets me is that he passed the breathalyzer and they still insisted that he undergo further testing. If he had failed the breathalyzer, it would have been enough to convict him. Seems as though they were simply not going to let him get away without some sort of charge:

Garner said the police officer did not apologize, but instead charged Lockard with obstruction of justice.

Police are jerks.

Up next, being prosecuted for not waiving your Miranda rights when it’s inconvenient for the cops.
