TOPEKA, Kan. (WIBW) - A Kansas man will keep his drivers license following a drunk driving stop.
The Kansas Supreme Court ruled Friday that the Kansas Department of Revenue didn't have authority to suspend Jacob Rodewald's license because the DUI stop which led to his license being suspended was made by Prairie Band Potawatomi Tribal Police on reservation land.
The Court's decision says the Revenue Department only has authority on cases involving an officer of the state within state jurisdiction. The reservation is the jurisdiction of the Prairie Band Potawatomi tribe and tribal law.
