SALINA, Kan. (AP) -- Salina police and Saline County sheriff's deputies plan to try a new "no refusal" policy during a saturation patrol Friday aimed at drunken drivers.

Salina police Lt. Russ Lamer said if a driver refuses a breath or blood test after being stopped on suspicion of driving under the influence, the officer will seek a search warrant to collect a sample of the driver's blood. He says new equipment will allow officers to ask for a search warrant electronically.

Lamer says a representative of the county attorney's office and a judge will be able to sign the warrant electronically. The process should take about 30 minutes.

The Salina Journal reports (http://bit.ly/Q0i499 ) the goal is to use the new procedure in the future whenever a DUI test is refused.
