"Justice Annette Ziegler said the stop was reasonable because Popke was driving erratically at 1:30 a.m."

So if he was driving erratically at 1:30 p.m., as many drivers in Wisconsin are prone to do, it would have been unreasonable? The time of day has nothing to do with it. The officer obviously had a suspicion and the crossing of the center line provided the probable cause for him pulling him over.
