Traffic Stop – Reasonable Suspicion – OWI Refusal Hearing Challenge to Arrest
Issues (composed by On Point):
1. Whether the officer could lawfully stop Anagnos’ vehicle for failing to use a turn signal where neither traffic nor pedestrians were present, § 346.34(1)(b).
2. Whether the officer had reasonable suspicion to stop Anagnos’ vehicle for: traversing a median, accelerating at a high rate up to a stop light, and turning at a highway intersection without using a turn signal.
3. Whether reasonable suspicion for the stop is properly a matter for consideration at the refusal hearing.
