MI: Def’s admission he took a sleeping pill before driving added to PC for his blood

The affidavit for the blood search warrant here included that defendant admitted taking some kind of sleeping pill before driving and getting in the accident. That was probable cause and the good faith exception applies in any event. People v. Czuprynski, 2018 Mich. App. LEXIS 2960 (Aug. 2, 2018).*

“For all of these reasons, the undersigned can find no point at which the stop was prolonged in violation of Idleman’s Fourth Amendment rights. Moreover, even if the stop had been measurably extended after Idleman was in custody, the officers had separate and independent grounds to continue to detain the Camry long enough to conduct a K9 sniff, because there was reasonable suspicion of criminal activity.” United States v. Idleman, 2018 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 129899 (N.D. W.Va. July 16, 2018).*
