State of Tennessee vs. John Howard Pope

Authoring Judge: Judge James K. Clayton, Jr.
Trial Court Judge: Judge Thomas T. Woodall

The Defendant, John Howard Pope, was convicted of DUI, 1st Offense, following a bench trial in the Circuit Court of Rutherford County. He appeals as of right pursuant to Rule 3 of the Tennessee Rules of Appellate Procedure. In addition to challenging the sufficiency of the evidence to support the conviction, Defendant argues that the trial court erred by denying his Motion to Suppress all evidence obtained as a result of the investigatory stop of him immediately preceding his arrest for DUI. We affirm the judgment of the trial court.
