Question: What are my Fourth Amendment rights during an OWI stop and arrest in Wisconsin?

Answer: The Fourth Amendment applies fully to any police action. That is not different during an OWI stop and arrest.

Those exceptions tend to apply and have to be carefully examined in OWI cases and in all traffic cases.
