D.Mont.: Search for gun outside house in curtilage was reasonable based on exigency or public safety

A search outside for a gun was reasonable for both public and officer safety. Officers responded to a domestic call at 2 am and there were four brothers there who concerned them. United States v. Sturdevant, 2017 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 63085 (D.Mont. April 25, 2017).*

Defendants’ uncontrolled nervousness, inability to look at the officer, and implausible travel story was reasonable suspicion to prolong the stop. Hoey v. State, 2017 Ark. App. 253, 2017 Ark. App. LEXIS 267 (April 26, 2017).

Defendant’s warranted blood draw was valid. Kressin v. State, 2017 Tex. App. LEXIS 3805 (Tex. App. – Houston (14th Dist.) April 27, 2017).*
