The South Dakota Supreme Court is hearing a case Wednesday that could change the way state law enforcement conducts DUI arrests.
Shaunna Fierro is appealing the blood draw conducted during her first drunk driving arrest last August in Butte County. Fierro is appealing based on a new U.S. Supreme Court decision that requires law enforcement to get an offender’s consent or get a warrant to draw blood during a DUI stop.
A Butte County judge threw out the blood draw results based on the recent U.S. Supreme Court ruling in Missouri v. McNeely and now the South Dakota Attorney General’s Office is appealing that decision.
We’ll have details on the arguments coming up later today on KELOLAND News.
