Iowa Supreme Court has ruled that an anonymous tip is not grounds for a DUI stop. In previous case-law it had been determined that it was OK for a stop to be based on someone calling in erratic or dangerous driving. It is not however legal to see someone who appears drunk and call them in. There has to be a traffic violation as someone “appearing” to be intoxicated is a subjective analysis. This makes sense that someone should not be able to just “determine” someone is drunk and have them pulled over. This would seem like a slippery slope law here to prevent abuse, and protect rights. It also would seem like there would be a point at which someone is too “visibly intoxicated” to not be called in.
