Alcohol retailers can decline tribal ID cards in South Dakota
Alcohol retailers can refuse to accept tribal and military identification cards, according to the state's attorney in Davison County, South Dakota.

A police officer in Mitchell told retailers they don't have to accept IDs from the Cheyenne River Sioux Tribe or the U.S. military. State's attorney Pat Smith sent a letter that said retailers must "act as a reasonable and prudent person" in deciding whether to accept such IDs.

Less than two percent of the county population is Native American, according to the U.S. Census Bureau.
