In this driver’s license suspension case, the driver argued the arresting officer had unreasonably delayed reading him the implied consent notice after his arrest for DUI.  The Court rejected this argument, finding that the 11-minute lapse between the arrest and the reading of the notice was not unreasonable because the officer used this time to conduct a search of the vehicle and arranged for the vehicle to be picked up.
