Choose your Ride
You can't hide from the Ride!
Last week Comal County initiated its 24 hour 7 days a week "No Refusal" program. If you are arrested for DWI and you refuse to give specimen of your breath a search warrant will be obtained and a sample of your blood will be drawn for analysis.
The blood draws are generally showing folks with BAC (blood alcohol) levels of 2-3 times the legal limit are driving around in Comal County. Many are repeat DWI offenders who have had drummed into their heads "no blow". Well, that strategy won't work any longer.
Here are two pictures of our latest addition to the Comal County Sheriff's Department fleet.
Choose your ride indeed!
Kudos to Comal County Criminal District Attorney Jennifer Tharp and to Chief Misdemeanor Prosecutor Mel Koehler for all of their hard work and dedication in setting up this program in Comal County.
Please drink responsibly.
