court of appeals decision (1-judge; not for publication); for Lonergan: Owen R. Williams; BiC; Resp.

Reasonable Suspicion – OWI Stop

Stop supported by reasonable suspicion, where vehicle “‘deviated constantly’ from a direct line of travel” and “made several abrupt course corrections,” albeit within its own lane. United States v. Lyons, 7 F.3d 973 (10th Cir. 1993) and United States v. Colin, 314 F.3d 439 (9th Cir. 2002), distinguished: “While we are mindful that no driver can maintain a perfectly straight course, neither Lyons nor Colin involved the type of erratic and abrupt course corrections Swan described here.”
