SD Supreme Court Hears Arguments In DUI Stop Based On Hearsay Tip


On Wednesday, Oct. 5, the South Dakota Supreme Court was asked this question: can an officer pull over a suspected drunk driver for no reason other than a hearsay tip?

The case comes out of Brookings, where a Hardee's employee reported to a manager that a drive-through customer seemed drunk.

The manager called the police without seeing the customer himself.

SDPB's Victoria Wicks reports on this case.

Wednesday is the last day of oral arguments for the October session. The state Supreme Court met at Northern State University in Aberdeen for three days and listened to three cases each day.
