Defendant was brought before a magistrate 47¼ hours after his arrest and arraigned at 3:15 am, and this was presumptively reasonable. His interrogation after he was released from the hospital after arrest but before arraignment complied with Miranda, and nothing “ripened” into a Gerstein violation. State v. Long, 2017 Tenn. Crim. App. LEXIS 609 (July 11, 2017).
