Motor Vehicles – OWI — reasonable suspicion

Kenneth E. Mauser appeals from a judgment of conviction for operating a motor vehicle while intoxicated (OWI), entered after a trial to the court on stipulated facts. Mauser contends that the circuit court erred in denying his motion to suppress evidence, in which he argued the arresting officer did not have reasonable suspicion to stop his vehicle. Considering the totality of the circumstances, including the arresting officer’s testimony that Mauser did not dim his high-beam headlights appropriately and was weaving both within and outside of his traffic lane, we affirm the circuit court’s conclusion that the officer had reasonable suspicion to stop Mauser. This opinion will not be published.
