Out of the 38 only 16 refused the drunk tests and a warrant had to be issued. Sensationalist headline really, makes it seem like the 38 DWI arrests were all no refusal arrests. My brother is a police officer in smaller Texas town and they arrest more drunk drivers every day there than APD does with its touted no refusals hoo doo.
