LA4: Having PC for an hour before arrest doesn’t require officers get a warrant

The police had defendant’s vehicle under surveillance for an hour waiting for him so they could arrest. Just because they had time to get a warrant doesn’t mean that they constitutionally were required to get one. State v. Brown, 2017 La. App. LEXIS 799 (La.App. 4 Cir. May 3, 2017).

The video shows the consent to be consensual. There is no constitutional objection that the defendant was stopped for a traffic offense by an unmarked car. Batten v. State, 2017 Ga. App. LEXIS 194 (May 5, 2017).*
