What takes Hickory Creek so long? Justice?

My husband was arrested in Hickory creek this past June 2012 for susp of a DWI. he in fact was not intoxicated but was driving after he took a pain medication which he was prescribed. He was taken to the hospital for bloodwork. According to Denton County as well as the district attorney the records/results have not been received due to the slow process of Hickory Creek. My question is that if someone is arrested in Hickory Creek what is the turnaround time for results for proper documentation from the police/judicial system here? Waiting 8 months in county jail for blood test results for someone who wasn't even intoxicated seems a little much. Anyone that can explain to me the process in which the city takes to process arrest's as well as the genera time the city takes to produce evidence would be appreciated..

Section 49.01(2)(a) of the Penal Code defines intoxication as "not having the normal use of mental or physical faculties by reason of the introduction of alcohol, a controlled substance, a drug, a dangerous drug, a combination of two or more of those substances, or any other substance into the body; OR (b) having an alcohol concentration of .08 or more."

Your issue is with the DPS lab and the district attorney's office.
