to force a high-ranking assistant Harris County district attorney to testify before a grand jury regarding evidence gathered from the Houston Police Department's mobile alcohol-testing vehicles.

A grand jury in recent months has been investigating issues surrounding the troubled testing vehicles and possibly the DA's office's involvement.

Special prosecutors filed a motion to compel Rachel Palmer to testify after she was subpoenaed and invoked her constitutional right to not incriminate herself Thursday morning.Because grand jury proceedings are secret, their intentions are unclear, but the startling development may mean grand jurors or the special prosecutors guiding them believe assistant Harris County district attorneys prosecuting DWI's knew there were technical problems with evidence from the breath alcohol-testing vehicles known as BAT vans.
