OH7: Driving on a suspended license doesn’t justify search incident of the car

Driving on a suspended license does not justify a search incident of his vehicle. Even worse, however, there was no justification for the arrest anyway. He was interrogated while handcuffed and admitted that there was heroin in his shoe. There was no probable cause for the arrest or search. State v. White, 2018-Ohio-1339, 2018 Ohio App. LEXIS 1469 (7th Dist. Apr. 9, 2018).

The officers did not unreasonably prolong the stop in violation of Rodriguez. United States v. Clinton, 2018 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 61489 (N.D. W.Va. Apr. 11, 2018).*
