NY: Threshold arrests remain valid in NYS

Defendant’s arrest at his threshold when he answered his door was valid. The court declines to overturn its “longstanding rule.” People v. Garvin, 2017 NY Slip Op 07382, 2017 N.Y. LEXIS 3201 (Oct. 24, 2017).

There was reasonable suspicion defendant had threatened somebody and had gang affiliation based on his Facebook posts, so his stop was justified. Nothing developed thereafter, however, to justify a search of his person, so that is suppressed. United States v. Jordan, 2017 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 176115 (W.D. N.Y. July 14, 2017),* adopted, 2017 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 175682 (W.D. N.Y. Oct. 24, 2017).*
