DE: Facts escalated from speeding to RS of DUI leading to SW for blood draw

Defendant’s stop started with speeding 85 in a 50, and the reasonable suspicion progressed to probable cause he was under the influence. “The Court also finds that Mr. Kamwani’s performance on the field sobriety tests, the odor of alcohol, the glassy eyes, the speeding violation, and the PBT test failure constituted probable cause that Mr. Kamwani had committed a DUI offense. Reviewing the warrant, the Court finds that the Justice of the Peace Judge had a ‘substantial basis’ for concluding that probable cause existed. Accordingly, the Court holds that the warrant to draw blood is valid.” State v. Kamwani, 2018 Del. Super. LEXIS 237 (June 1, 2018).*

Federal convict’s pro se complaint alleging illegal search, among other things, was time barred and properly dismissed. A defendant’s denials is not a continuing violation extending limitations.
