Lockard and his attorney claim in the suit that police took him to Dearborn County Hospital and forced him to submit to a urine and blood test.
Police said they obtained a warrant, but Lockard's attorney said his client was shackled to a gurney and had a catheter inserted against his will.
No person shall be held to answer for a capital, or otherwise infamous crime, unless on a presentment or indictment of a grand jury, except in cases arising in the land or naval forces, or in the militia, when in actual service in time of war or public danger; nor shall any person be subject for the same offense to be twice put in jeopardy of life or limb; nor shall be compelled in any criminal case to be a witness against himself, nor be deprived of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor shall private property be taken for public use, without just compensation.

The really telling part is that when he refused and in the end the test came back under the legal limit he was still charged with obstruction of justice. So here you have a guy who has broken no laws and who defends his rights being charged anyway. There are few very dangerous 'laws' that the police can abuse on a whim as shown by this case. Those being such as 'obstruction of justice', 'disorderly conduct' and 'failure to obey a lawful order'.
