Issues: Appellant's Statement of the Issues:
I:Grosgebauer was deemed to have consented to a blood draw, as provided in Section 39-20-01, N.D.C.C., and since he neither withdrew his implied consent nor affirmatively refused to participate in the blood draw, he did not refuse the chemical test, nor did he interfere with the administration of a test.
II:Grosgebauer cured any refusal when, in response to Trooper St. Aubyn telling both the jailer and Grosgebauer that he refused, Grosgebauer declared, "I did not refuse" or "I'm not refusing" and it is undisputed that, 1) there was ample time to get a blood draw, 2) there was a nurse right in the building and readily available, and 3) Grosgebauer was still in his custody and under St. Aubyn's observation the whole time.

Appellee's Statement of the Issues:
1. Whether a reasoning mind reasonably could have concluded that Grosgebauer refused to submit to Trooper St. Aubyn's request for a blood test.
2. Whether Grosgebauer cured his refusal to submit to the request for a blood test.
