            Appeal from the Iowa District Court for Story County, Steven P. Van Marel, District Associate Judge.  AFFIRMED.  Considered by Potterfield, P.J., Doyle, J., and Carr, S.J.  Opinion by Potterfield, P.J. (10 pages)

            Ryan Dunn appeals the district court’s denial of his motion to suppress.  Dunn concedes that he initially engaged in a consensual interaction with police officers but argues actions taken by officers during the encounter resulted in the unconstitutional seizure of his person.  He also argues his vehicle was unconstitutionally searched without a warrant and without an applicable exception to the warrant requirement.  Finally, Dunn argues, in the alternative, that he was subject to custodial interrogation without receiving a Miranda warning.  OPINION HOLDS: We affirm the district court’s denial of Dunn’s motion to suppress.
