Morning all, After a little bit of clarification as the below has caused a couple of issues in custody. I'm drug wipe trained. Recently I arrested someone for driving whilst unfit through drugs (did a roadside breath test and it was zero, so didn't bother with drink as well). He also failed the roadside drug wipe (cocaine). Got to custody, start the MGDD forms. Get consent from the driver, inform the custody sgt who says he'll have to call the doctor as we are going for section 4 (unfit). I was under the impression that because we have the positive drug wipe, that shows that the unfit is due to a drug being present and as such we don't need a doctor to attend and we can get the custody nurse to take the blood. If however we had just nicked him for section 4 without the drug wipe test or a FIT we would need the doctor to attend. We did get the blood from the nurse after custody spoke to someone from traffic, but just wanted to double check that it is correct what I'm thinking. Thanks :).
