The 4th Amendment requires that a police officer must have a valid reason to stop your vehicle.
In most drunk driving offenses, it is likely that your vehicle was stopped for a traffic offense. If an officer is suspicious of drunk driving, he will be looking for certain indicia of impairment as you and he interact.
What are indicia of impairment?
Slurred speech, red, bloodshot watery eyes, and an odor of alcohol to name a few.
An officer needs to have reasonable suspicion to ask you to perform field sobriety tests and the State will argue that your driving pattern along with the observations of the stop officer provided the reasonable suspicion required to request field sobriety tests.
