This is my third attempt to answer my question. The replies have been informative, however I think additional details are needed.
If a third party called the police to say I "appeared intoxicated" but "did not" witnessed swerving or any signs of impairment but solely on their opinion that I "appeared intoxicated", can the police stop me? The officer said I stopped you because someone called and said that I "appeared intoxicated".
I did fail the breathalyzer, but I believe it was because of mouth alcohol (Mouthwash) trapped in my dentures. I really did not consume any alcoholic beverages that morning or in the last two weeks prior to being stopped.
My question is "can the police stop a motorist without the ploice witnessing a violation solely on a third part informant? Thank you in advance
