W.D.N.C.: Being parked in the middle of the road with the engine running is RS

“In this case, the evidence is clear that Officer Paxton observed a Mercedes Benz parked in the middle of the road with its engine running and lights on. After his initial approach to the car, he discovered that both the driver and the defendant were asleep. Under Barnard, such circumstances would give rise to a reasonable, articulable suspicion of impaired driving.” Defendant’s patdown after finding a partially concealed weapon was reasonable. United States v. Seabrooks, 2018 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 75173 (W.D. N.C. May 3, 2018).*

Detention for a BAC test and denying a call before the test violated state law and required suppression. State v. Davis, 2018 Iowa App. LEXIS 402 (May 2, 2018).*

The motion to suppress is denied because the officers had reasonable suspicion for the stop. United States v. Grim, 2018 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 74190 (D. Del. May 2, 2018).*
