State v. ElbersonAnnotate this Case
After being arrested for OVUII, Defendant was taken to the police station, where he was read an implied consent form. After being informed of the sanctions for refusal, Defendant elected to take a blood test, which resulted in a blood alcohol reading above the legal limit. Defendant was ultimately convicted of OVUII. The Intermediate Court of Appeals upheld the conviction. The Supreme Court vacated the judgments of the lower courts, holding that, in accordance with State v. Won, the result of Defendant’s blood test was the product of a warrantless search, and accordingly, Defendant’s conviction could not be upheld.
