  • FACTS: A motorist driving erratically and running a stop sign was stopped by police. Smelling alcohol on motorist’s breath, the officer administered a field sobriety test, which the motorist failed. He was charged with DUI. The trial court allowed statements and conduct prior to arrest without Miranda warnings. Superior Court reversed.

PENNSYLVANIA v. BRUDER

  • AFTERTHOUGHT: Many cases have addressed this issue. They can be found compiled and discussed at: 25 A.L.R.3d 1076, “Right of motorist stopped by police officers for traffic offense to be informed at that time of his federal constitutional rights under Miranda v. Arizona.”
