Highlight

Observations of bloodshot eyes and slurred speech, along with a police officer's inferences and deductions which may elude a layperson, are sufficient for establishing reasonable and articulable suspicion.
An individual's own words and failing performance of field sobriety tests are relevant factors in determining probable cause for an arrest, but a failing result on a field sobriety test is not required to establish probable cause.
