‘Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over' Weekend in Collin County

This weekend, Dec. 16-18, is a "Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over" weekend in Collin County.

Collin County District Attorney Greg Willis said in a statement Friday drivers suspected of drunken driving this weekend will be asked to provide law enforcement with a breath or blood sample.

If drivers refuse, officers will seek a warrant from a judge to have a health care professional collect the sample.

"On-call judges stand ready to determine probable cause for a warrant. The driver's blood will be drawn if the judge finds there is sufficient evidence of DWI," the district attorney said in a news release.

Health care professionals will be stationed at local jails this weekend to collect blood samples.

"The mission of the Collin County District Attorney's office is to pursue justice and protect the community. It works with law enforcement agencies to reduce the number of DWI offenses through the combination of effective prosecution and public awareness of the "Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over" program," the district attorney said.
