At Least One Use of New DUI Law Locally

Wyoming's new DUI law is just a week old, but Sheridan police have put it to use during last weekend's three-day holiday. Detective Lt. Chris Dahmke says that the law has been used in at least one DUI arrest.

The new law states that if a person under suspicion of DUI refuses to submit to a blood, breath, or urine test, police are allowed to obtain a search warrant to obtain blood from said person.

Dahmke said that the guidelines Redle put together for the police department have so far helped them make a smooth transition into use of the new law. He added that it will remain to be seen how the law will operate during the traditionally busy rodeo weekend for law enforcement next week.
