An offer they cannot refuse
Court will order DUI suspects to give blood samples this weekend
As the National Football League hosts its 47th big game this weekend, police in Grundy County are gearing up for their own big event.
This weekend, according to Grundy County State’s Attorney Jason Helland, will be the county’s first-ever “No Refusal” Super Bowl Weekend. On Saturday, Feb. 2, and Sunday, Feb. 3, police may seek search warrants from a judge to require any motorist suspected of DUI to submit to a blood test.
While preparing for the big weekend, Helland took a page out of the playbook of several other prosecutors’ offices that have used this tool to successfully combat drunk driving and protect the public.
