Date Published:

Summary

            Appeal from the Iowa District Court for Clinton County, Stuart P. Werling, Judge.  AFFIRMED.  Considered by Bower, C.J., and May and Greer, JJ.  Tabor, J., takes no part.  Opinion by Greer, J.  (5 pages)

            Following a trial on the minutes of evidence, Robert Mohr was convicted of operating while intoxicated, first offense.  On appeal, Mohr challenges the denial of his motion to suppress, maintaining the officer who stopped his vehicle had neither reasonable suspicion nor probable cause to do so.  OPINION HOLDS: Because credible evidence supports the determination the officer witnessed Mohr drive his vehicle over the center line of the four-lane divided road, the officer had probable cause to initiate the stop.  We affirm the district court’s denial of Mohr’s motion to suppress.
