BOISE, Idaho (AP) — A U.S. court has ruled that wildlife officials can continue setting up checkpoint stations to stop all vehicles to enforce hunting and fishing regulations.

The court last week rejected a northern Idaho man’s argument that the roadblocks violate state law and the U.S. constitution.

Chief U.S. District Court Judge David C. Nye dismissed Steve Tanner’s lawsuit filed after Tanner was taken into custody for failing to stop at a checkpoint station near his home.

Tanner wasn’t hunting or fishing.
