U.S. Supreme Court rules in favor of Wisconsin OWI law

Local News

The Supreme Court has handed down multiple decisions with major implications for cases in Wisconsin.

The first says that officers can draw blood from someone suspected of an OWI without a warrant. The ruling comes from a Wisconsin law that says, when the motorist is unconscious, blood can be drawn.

Lawyers for one Wisconsin driver argued that the law constitutes an unreasonable search and seizure. The court ruled in favor of the state, upholding the policy.
