State vs. Ann Elizabeth Martin
E1999-01361-CCA-R3-CD
Authoring Judge: Judge Thomas T. Woodall
Trial Court Judge: Stephen M. Bevil
Defendant Ann Elizabeth Martin was convicted of driving under the influence, first offense. In this appeal as of right she argues (1) the trial court erred when it did not suppress blood test results because of statutory and constitutional infirmities in the implied consent form; and (2) the stop of her vehicle and subsequent arrest are unconstitutional because the arresting officer did not have a reasonable articulable suspicion warranting a traffic stop. Held: the implied consent form complies with the statutory requirements. However, the officer who arrested Defendant did not have a reasonable articulable suspicion warranting a traffic stop. Defendant's conviction is reversed, and the case is remanded for dismissal of the charge.
