No refusal weekend DUI crackdown

Amarillo, Texas - New Year's celebrations across the area mean it's no refusal weekend across Amarillo, so if you're pulled over for drunk driving, and don't want to take a breathalyzer test, authorities can take your blood.

Judges will be on call throughout the night all the way to Monday morning to okay the blood search warrant if there's probable cause. The whole process happens quickly.

Getting that warrant takes about 15 minutes, and another five minutes to get the blood drawn.

State, local and county authorities are working together on this DUI crackdown effort.
