Urine trouble now

Here's your Wednesday morning eye-opener!

NEW ALBANY, Ind. (CN) - A man claims a Lawrenceburg police officer had him forcibly catheterized to obtain a urine sample because the officer suspected him of drunken driving. Jamie Lockard claims he was restrained and catheterized by force on Officer Brian Miller's orders.

[. . .]

After administering the breath test, Miller obtained a warrant for a blood and urine sample and took Lockard to Dearborn County Hospital, where he willingly offered a blood sample, but was unable to urinate immediately, according to the complaint.

So you're OK with forced catheterization absent reasonable probable cause, and the person then being charged with obstruction even after the following tests proved he was in fact, under the legal limit?

How can you NOT have something to say about that?
