DE: Nervousness, criminal history, use of a rental vehicle, and high crime area not RS

“Delaware Courts have held that nervousness, criminal history, and use of a rental vehicle are not supportive of reasonable suspicion unless used in conjunction with ‘more tangible, objectively articulable indicators of criminality.’” Being in a high crime area also wasn’t enough. Motion to suppress granted. State v. Bordley, 2017 Del. Super. LEXIS 338 (July 11, 2017).*

Hitting the fog line and rumble strips was enough for a stop since the vehicle appeared to be wandering in its lane. The “overwhelming” smell of marijuana was reasonable suspicion. United States v. Portis, 2017 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 107382 (N.D. Ala. July 12, 2017).*
