WI Court of Appeals – District I
Case Name: State of Wisconsin v. Sarah Ann Wallk
Case No.: 2017AP61
Officials: BRENNAN, P.J.
Focus: Sufficiency of Evidence
Sarah Ann Wallk appeals an order finding her refusal to submit to an evidentiary chemical test of her blood unreasonable. Wallk argues that the odor of alcohol from inside the vehicle and a driver’s admission of drinking several hours earlier does not constitute “information [discovered] subsequent to the initial stop [that], when combined with information already acquired, provided reasonable suspicion” sufficient to continue a traffic stop for the purpose of performing field sobriety tests. See State v. Colstad, 2003 WI App 25, ¶¶11, 19, 260 Wis. 2d 406, 659 N.W.2d 394. We disagree and affirm.
