Medicolegal and Ethics Checking Alcohol Level in Alcoholic without Consent

Ethics question.

If an alcoholic man is brought to you (By the cops lets say), i know you can't treat it or perform any procedures on him without his consent, but what about blood alcohol level? Can we withdraw blood for BAL without his consent?
