Wisconsin Court of Appeals
Motor Vehicles – OWI — reasonable suspicion
Diane Parker appeals a circuit court judgment convicting her of operating with a prohibited alcohol concentration, third offense, in violation of Wis. Stat. § 346.63(1)(b). Parker contends that the circuit court erred in denying her motion to suppress evidence of her blood alcohol concentration. Specifically, she argues that the arresting officer did not have reasonable suspicion to approach and question her, leading to her arrest and subsequent blood test showing a blood alcohol concentration above the legal limit. This court agrees with the circuit court that reasonable suspicion existed to justify this encounter. Accordingly, the judgment is affirmed. This opinion will not be published.
