AUSTIN, Texas (KXAN) — Three days after Marble Falls police took their first driving while intoxicated suspect to the hospital armed with a search warrant for a blood draw, Seton Highland Lakes Medical Center in Burnet announced they will no longer adhere to the court order.

“There were some issues,” said Capt. Roger Sooter, with the Marble Falls Police Department. “But the draw was made, then we received the letter from the administrator.”

Seton Highland Lakes Medical Center Administrator, Scott Fuller, wrote a letter to city and county officials Oct. 6 that stated “effective immediately, the Highland Lakes Medical Center will not draw specimens under a search warrant. Please do not transport persons to the hospital for that purpose.”

Marble Falls police had just launched the new DWI blood warrant program for Burnet County. All county and district judges agreed to sign off on search warrants requiring a blood test when a suspect refuses a breath test.
