A Cape Girardeau drunk driving case is going all the way to the U.S. Supreme Court.
The court will decide if police can give a blood test without a warrant.
After Tyler McNeely failed a field sobriety check and refused the breath test, a Missouri State Highway Patrol Officer took him to hospital where he had a blood test.
The American Civil Liberties Union of Eastern Missouri represents McNeely. Legal director Tony Rothert says the officer infringed upon McNeely’s fourth amendment protection from unreasonable search by drawing his blood without a warrant.
Opponents of a Cape Girardeau ordinance that established an urban deer hunting program say they have enough signatures to put the issue to a vote.
The Southeast Missourian reports the organizer of Keep Cape Safe says more than 3,000 petition signatures are on hand and notarized. Only 2,446 signatures are needed to get a referendum on the ballot.
The City Council in July approved bow hunting of deer inside Cape Girardeau City limits. Last week the council rejected a request to put the deer hunts to a public vote, prompting opponents to begin the petition drive.
