People v. Arredondo, 040980

Convictions of felony driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs, causing injury, felony driving with a blood alcohol content of 0.08 percent, causing injury, and misdemeanor driving without a license are affirmed where although the consent imputed to drivers under California's "implied consent" law cannot by itself justify a seizure without a duly issued warrant, the trial court's correctly ruled that the officer here reasonably relied on the statute in seizing defendant's blood without a warrant, bringing the case within the good faith exception to the exclusionary rule.
