CA11: It’s reasonable to assume the person named in an arrest warrant is home at 11 pm

Officers had an arrest warrant for plaintiff and a reasonable belief he’d be at home at 11 pm in February when it would be presumed one would be home. He’d listed that place as his address during a prior arrest, and that it was his home was inferentially corroborated by an occupant. The Tasering of the arrestee’s mother, based on this record, wasn’t remotely justified, and she states a claim for excessive force. She wasn’t interfering or resisting; she was upset they wouldn’t leave her house. Brand v. Casal, 2017 U.S. App. LEXIS 25587 (11th Cir. Dec. 19, 2017).

Defendant’s cell site location information claim wasn’t presented to the trial court and no record supports hearing it on appeal. State v. Azevedo, 178 Conn. App. 671, 2017 Conn. App. LEXIS 497 (Dec. 19, 2017).*
