Final Result: Not Guilty on Both Counts

Facts: The police were called to the Defendant’s house for a 911 hang-up call.

The police officers subdued him and arrested him charging him with intentionally attempting to commit great bodily harm on them by shooting them while they were entering his back yard.

Original Charge: DWI - 3rd Degree – Gross Misdemeanor

Case Date: 05/13/16 – 01/17/17

Final Result: Case Dismissed on Motion to the Court

Facts: The Defendant was arrested in the City of Hastings for driving while under the influence with an aggravating factor of a .16 blood alcohol or greater. Based on our investigation, it was determined that the Defendant was on private property entering onto a public roadway. Since the officers only reason for stopping the Defendant was a failure to signal based on previous appellate litigation by our office, State v. Timmerman, one is not obligated to signal a turn coming out of private property. The case was dismissed and the charges dismissed against the Defendant.
