"The vehicle was subsequently pulled over and the driver was advised of the reason for the stop. While speaking with the driver of the vehicle, the investigating officer detected the odor of an alcoholic beverage emitting from inside the vehicle. The driver was asked to exit the vehicle.
"While the investigating officer talked with the driver outside of the vehicle, he continued to detect an odor of an alcoholic beverage emitting from the driver’s breath and person.
