Doctors in Training


A federal appeals court has ruled San Carlos, California, police did not have the right to break into Brian Hopkins home because they allegedly believed he might be in a diabetic coma. Hopkins got into a minor traffic accident with another driver. They got out but didn't see any damage, so Hopkins drove off. The woman apparently thought he'd been drinking, so she followed him home and called police. Police knocked on his door but didn't get an answer. They say they feared that instead of being drunk he was having a diabetic seizure, so they forced their way in. A jury found Hopkins not guilty of DUI, and now he is suing the police.
