No charges ? Please help
It may be that your friend is being considered for an allegation of failing to provide a specimen. There is no facility to provide an evidential breath specimen at the hospital so the next step, if the police accepted that your friend had a legitimate needle phobia, should have been for a urine sample to be obtained. It sounds like that did not happen? Without knowing the facts it is not possible to be definitive but it appears that police will potentially charge you with failing to provide a specimen of blood. This sort of case can involve a complicated procedural process for the officers to comply with, particularly given that your friend was knocked out. I would recommend speaking with a solicitor over the phone to discuss the circumstances of the procedure in more detail. You can contact one of our team on 0333 009 5518.
