OH6: Warrantless blood draw from believed to be dying motorcyclist valid

A warrantless blood draw from defendant was reasonable where, at the scene of his motorcycle accident on I-75 hitting the rear of a car when it was travelling approximately 102 in a 65 and killing his passenger throwing her 450′ beyond where the motorcycle stopped, the officers came upon defendant and thought he was going to bleed out and die before help arrived. He was unconscious and unresponsive, his face was torn off, and he was only making gurgling noises. He was no better at the ER. State v. Speelman, 2017-Ohio-9306, 2017 Ohio App. LEXIS 5777 (6th Dist. Dec. 29, 2017).

Defendant has no standing to claim a tracking device was improperly placed in a package shipped to his address where he did not claim any interest in the package. United States v. Ruffin, 2017 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 213253 (N.D. Ohio Dec. 29, 2017).*
