    Personally I don't think so without a warrant and I do not know any judge that would order such a procedure.

    One must wonder why not a warrant for blood test. It sounds suspicious, but would need far more information and review to provide proper answer.

    The question would be whether the sheriff had a warrant for that procedure. If not then the answer is probably no.
