DUI Blood Tests Roadside

Soon, Trained Officers Will Be Able to Draw Blood From DUI Suspects in the State of Georgia 


Drunk drivers, beware. In the State of Georgia, trained officers will soon be able to draw blood from drunk drivers, impaired drivers, or DUI suspects. And it can happen on the spot of the actual DUI arrests. Over a dozen other states already have very similar laws to this one. By the end of 2021, the Governor's Office of Highway Safety expects to have close to 100 trained officers certified in this new program. 


People in the State of Georgia law enforcement community believe that this new program of actually drawing blood from impaired or suspected DUI drivers roadside will provide critical evidence for prosecuting DUI cases. In addition to alcohol, the test can also check for illegal and prescription drugs in the bloodstream. 


The officers in this new program will become certified phlebotomists. If you don't know what a phlebotomist is, basically, they are trained medical professionals who take blood samples from patients. Additionally, the law enforcement community is very excited about this possibility because these blood tests will be more detailed than typical breathalizers and are historically much more accurate too.


A judge must sign a warrant, or the DUI suspect must consent for the blood draw to occur. But once a search warrant has been issued for a suspect's blood, the driver is required to give the blood sample. 


On October 4, 2021, the first group of officers will begin training to learn this new skill. State troopers, HEAT officials, and Georgia State Patrol Nighthawk officers will be among the first to receive training, sending in teams from all over the state to learn this new skill. 

DUI is a very serious charge and can lead to massively expensive fines, loss of driving privileges, and even jail time. If you have been charged with a DUI and need help navigating the process, Julie C. Moore and her team have helped many of their clients in the same situation. Call their team today. 


Local Events

Thrill @ The Mill Is Coming Soon!

It's that time of the year again. Thrill at The MILL is just around the corner. This FREE event happens on October 30, 2021, between the hours of 10:00 am - 12:00 pm. 

This family-friendly event is open to all ages with many events that will appeal to a wide range of participants and guests who want to observe all the festivities. There will be trick or treating, an exciting and artsy pumpkin carving contest, a fun costume contest for kids of all ages, a One Mile Fun Run, and a really cool Zombie Run 5K in full zombie apparel. 

Sidenote: in case you're wondering to yourself, "just how fast can a zombie run?" let's address that thought right now. Just expect zombie speeds achieved at this race to run the gamut. We anticipate speeds somewhere between a "slow zombie" Walking Dead type lumbering shuffle all the way up to a World War Z "fast zombie" adrenaline-rush-induced sprint that would make Usain Bolt jealous. Or somewhere in between, LOL. Either way, we expect a fun day at the races.

 We hope to see you there!
Event: Thrill @ The Mill
Dates: Saturday, October 30 @ 10am
Address: The MILL Amphitheater: 106 Temple Street, Villa Rica, GA

Attention Pumpkin Spice Lovers!

Easy Pumpkin Dip

Yes, it's that time of the year again. And nothing seems to suggest fall like the complete and utter pumpkin "spiceification" of everything you like to eat (and maybe a lot of things you don't want to). Either way, whether you love it or hate it, it's September, and it's going to happen. 


With that being said, this excellent dip recipe is a perfect example of that single fact. People love dips. People love pumpkin spice. So why not combine those two loves and make a sweetly spiced pumpkin dip? You could even use this as a spread on your favorite slices of bread. See the easy-to-make recipe below. You're welcome, by the way, LOL!

Need A Laugh?

The Law Giveth and the Law Taketh

When the Cherokee County Sheriff Deputy pulled over a car one night on I-75, the man in the passenger seat jumped out of the car and ran into the woods. While doing so, he dropped his backpack and winning lottery ticket! 

Being the nice guys that they are in Cherokee County, they posted the winning lottery ticket that was worth $100 on their Facebook page and invited the owner to come pick it up. However, the backpack that the person left behind also contained methamphetamine. 

"When he bonds out of jail or gets done with these charges, we'll certainly return that lottery ticket but we're keeping the methamphetamine," Baker says.

That seems fair!
