A man elected to uphold the law is in trouble after being stopped over the weekend.
Just days before taking office, Mellette County's Sheriff-elect is charged with DUI, possession of a firearm while intoxicated and exhibition driving. According to a traffic ticket, the Jones County Sheriff pulled over Mike Blom early Saturday morning in Murdo and issued the three tickets.
It's Blom's first DUI. He was formally charged Wednesday with a four count complaint.
