“No-Refusal” enforcement was in full effect over Halloween weekend resulting in 7 DUI arrests in Kane County. Police officers form Carpentersville, East Dundee, Elgin, South Elgin, West Dundee and the Illinois State Police participated.
“No-Refusal” enforcement arranges for Assistant State’s Attorneys to be on call to request search warrants from a Judge to obtain blood samples from suspects who refuse to provide a sample. Failing to comply with the search warrant can result in charges of contempt of court or obstruction of justice.
Two of the seven people arrested initially refused testing. One complied once he was informed they would get a search warrant and the other submitted to testing once the the search warrant was obtained. Blood alcohol levels from that night ranged from 0.05 to .021 percent.
