J. Bradley finds that the court of appeals improperly ruled not to suppress evidence that police officers gathered after they entered defendant's fenced-in backyard without a warrant. The police officers' entry does not qualify as a valid "knock and talk" investigation because they did not have valid permission to enter the property or reasonable cause to justify a "hot pursuit." Defendant's convictions for OWI and endangering safety must be vacated. Reversed.
