On March 28, 2014, Division One of the Arizona Court of Appeals overturned a trial court order precluding the State’s expert from testifying that, based upon his retrograde extrapolation calculation, a defendant’s blood alcohol concentration (BAC) was above the legal limit within two hours of driving even though the blood wasn’t draw until four hours after the alleged driving ended and there was no evidence presented about the defendant’s eating and drinking history prior to the traffic stop.
