(KCEN) -- The nation's highest court is weighing a case that could affect future drunk driving cases across the country.
The American Civil Liberties Union claims that without a warrant, a blood test for drunk driving suspects is a violation of the Fourth Amendment.
Lawyers argue police should be allowed to administer a blood test without a warrant.
They say a person's blood alcohol level drops as the body processes it and a quick reading is necessary.
The court is expected to rule on the case later this year.
