Re: Exicigent Circumstances
You were detained at the moment that you yielded to the pretty flashing lights in your rear view mirror. Are you saying that within 10 minutes of being pulled over, your blood was drawn? I know some states have LEOs that are trained and legally able to perform blood draws, but this is more commonly done by medical professionals in a hospital. I imagine that what you actually mean to say is that the blood draw happened 10 minutes after arriving at the hospital for your "chest pain."
I cannot speak for your specific case, but the most common "exigent circumstances" cited for a DUI blood draw is the destruction of evidence. The human body metabolizes alcohol/drugs after ingestion. So, your body is destroying evidence from the moment the police stop you. I don't know the case law in TN regarding this argument, but I'm sure your attorney does. Explain the factual details to your attorney and he/she will be able to advise you.
