FARGO, N.D. (AP) - The attorney for the North Dakota State University Development Foundation director is seeking to have evidence suppressed in a drunken driving case.

Defense attorney Mark Friese says in a motion filed in Fargo Municipal Court that police made a spectacle of Jim Miller on Feb. 5 by giving him field sobriety tests in front of other people.

Friese also says no traffic violation occurred to warrant the traffic stop. Police dispute that. City Prosecutor Jodi Bass declined comment but said the city plans to file a response.

Miller came under fire last fall during discussion about cost overruns with the new NDSU president's house, a project overseen by the Development Foundation. The foundation is the private fundraising arm of NDSU. Miller has worked for the foundation since 1982.
