Summary

            Appeal from the Iowa District Court for Black Hawk County, Jeffrey L. Harris, District Associate Judge.  AFFIRMED.  Considered by Bower, C.J., Ahlers, J., and Danilson, S.J.  Opinion by Danilson, S.J.  (10 pages)

            Felix Quintero-Labrada appeals his convictions of operating while intoxicated and possession of a fictitious identification card.  OPINION HOLDS: We conclude the district court properly denied Quintero-Labrada’s motion to suppress evidence of field sobriety tests.  As there was neither custody nor interrogation of Quintero-Labrada, we conclude a Miranda warning was not required at the time he performed the field sobriety tests.  He has not shown he received ineffective assistance of counsel.  Quintero-Labrada’s convictions are supported by substantial evidence in the record.  We affirm Quintero-Labrada’s convictions.
