“Here, while Officer Mackensen had no reasonable suspicion that Long was involved in criminal activity before he checked Long’s vehicle’s license plate, he was permitted to do so pursuant to the case law authority. And, once he learned the license plate was suspended, he had reasonable suspicion to stop Long’s vehicle to investigate his driving under suspension.” City of Parma v.
