Since he wasn't driving that wouldn't apply. But if the officers had any suspicion of drug or alcohol use, all they had to do was ask a judge for a warrant. Z was in public (public drunkeness?) and was involved in a shooting. All it would have taken would be for LE to ask him did you drink tonight, smell alcohol on him or make an observation that made it appear that he might have been drinking. That would give them the reasonable suspicion to request the warrant.

Why is it that when a custodial parent fails to provide for a child it is called neglect and is a criminal matter. But when a non custodial parent fails to provide it is called failure to support and is a civil matter?
