The police did not have reasonable suspicion to believe the red car Nolan was driving had been involved in a reportable accident and was leaving the scene or was assisting others in leaving the scene of a reportable accident in violation of § 346.70(1) or (1m)(b), as there was no evidence supporting a reasonable belief the alleged accident involved sufficient property damage to make it reportable under the statute.
¶15 …. Deputy Belleau testified that he received information from the dispatcher that “a white vehicle had hit a curb and the occupants were outside the vehicle … [and] a small red vehicle was in the area either trying to move the white vehicle or pick up the occupants of that vehicle.” However, there is no evidence in the record that Deputy Belleau was advised by the dispatcher that either the white vehicle, or the curb, had sustained any damage, nor is there any evidence that Deputy Belleau observed any such damage prior to stopping Nolan, let alone apparent damage to state property in excess of $200 or apparent damage to personal property in excess of $1,000. Nothing in the record supports the conclusion that any time any vehicle hits a curb, the vehicle will cost in excess of $1,000 to repair or the curb (or state property) will cost in excess of $200 to repair. Accordingly, I conclude that Deputy Belleau did not have reasonable suspicion to believe that the white vehicle was involved in a reportable accident under Wis. Stat. § 346.70(1) and, therefore, did not have reasonable suspicion to believe that someone in a red vehicle had violated § 346.70(m)(b). ….
