Court: TN Court of Criminal Appeals

Attorneys 1:

Bradley L. Henry, Knoxville, Tennessee, for the appellant, Robert Lee Vandergriff, Jr.

Attorneys 2:

Robert E. Cooper, Jr., Attorney General and Reporter; Cameron L. Hyder, Assistant Attorney General; William Paul Phillips, District Attorney General; and LaTasha Wassom, Assistant District Attorney General, for the appellee, State of Tennessee.

Judge(s): WILLIAMS

The defendant, Robert Lee Vandergriff, Jr., was convicted of driving while intoxicated, a Class A misdemeanor, by a Union County jury. He was sentenced to a term of eleven months and twenty-nine days, all of which was suspended but for eight days service in the county jail. On appeal, the defendant’s single contention of error is that the trial court erred by failing to grant his motion to suppress. Specifically, he asserts this decision was error because he was seized without reasonable suspicion. Following review of the record, we affirm the denial of the motion to suppress.
