Amber D. Haas, Assistant District Public Defender (on appeal); and Bryan E. Delius, Sevierville, Tennessee (at trial), for the appellee, Izz-Aldin Ahmed Mustafa.

Judge(s): WITT

In this appeal as of right, the State challenges the trial court’s grant of the defendant’s motion to suppress evidence obtained during a traffic stop of the defendant, claiming that the trial court erred by concluding that the defendant had been seized without legal justification. Discerning no error, we affirm.
