Court: TN Court of Criminal Appeals

Shannon L. Crutcher, Nashville, Tennessee, for the appellant, Bobby Jay Fuqua.

Attorneys 2:

Herbert H. Slatery III, Attorney General and Reporter; Leslie E. Price, Senior Counsel; John W. Carney, District Attorney General; and Jason White, Assistant District Attorney General, for the appellee, State of Tennessee.

Judge(s): WOODALL

Pursuant to a negotiated plea agreement, Defendant, Bobby Jay Fuqua, pleaded guilty to driving under the influence of an intoxicant (DUI), fourth offense. He properly reserved a certified question of law regarding whether the police officer had reasonable suspicion to seize the Defendant. Upon reviewing the record and the applicable law, we conclude that the evidence supports the trial court's finding that the police officer had reasonable suspicion to seize Defendant. Accordingly, we affirm the judgment of the trial court.
