It is important to realize that there are many cases where a warrant was obtained without the requisite probable cause, or where officer misconduct during the warrant's execution provides a means of dismissing the charges against you. A warrant to obtain a blood test in the event of a DWI must follow a specific procedure; a petition must be presented to the judge in the correct way, in a timely manner, etc.
In the event that someone's property or person is searched where evidence is obtained to make an arrest in a way that is not compliant, it may be possible to suppress the evidence. Suppressed evidence cannot be used against you in trial, so in most cases where a suppression order is granted, the underlying case may be dismissed.
