VT: When RS for a traffic stop dissipates, the stop must end

The officer had reasonable suspicion that defendant was driving under the influence, and that justified the stop and getting defendant out of the car. It became evident, however, that reasonable suspicion dissipated, and continuing the stop after that required suppression of what was found continuing it. State v. Dubaniewicz, 2019 VT 13, 2019 Vt. LEXIS 33 (Mar. 2, 2019).

A driver may consent to a blood draw or a breath test. Refusal to consent to a blood draw then requires a warrant. Diaz v. Bernini, 2019 Ariz. LEXIS 60 (Feb. 28, 2019).
