CT: Two police cars converging on def and telling him to stop was a seizure

Two police cars driving at defendant in a Subway parking lot from different directions and stopping him was a stop. And, he was ordered to stop by an officer. State v. Edmonds, 2016 Conn. LEXIS 251 (Sept. 13, 2015) (concur; concur; dissent).

“The Court finds that a reasonable person would have felt free to decline Detective Garcia’s requests and terminate the encounter. Under Robinson, the facts of this case warrant a conclusion that the questioning of defendant and the search of his backpack constitute a consensual encounter that did not constitute a Terry stop. Prior to discovering the pills in defendant Penton’s backpack, Detective Garcia neither detained nor interrogated Penton.” United States v. Penton, 2016 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 115703 (W.D.Mo. July 26, 2016),* adopted, 2016 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 115194 (W.D. Mo. Aug. 29, 2016).*
