N.D.Ind.: Once the police see PC, they don’t have to investigate alternative theories to dispel it

Defendant’s theoretical possibilities that more could have been done to investigate doesn’t undermine the probable cause that already existed. The police didn’t have to investigate all the alternatives to what could have been when they had probable cause as to defendant. United States v. Bacon, 2018 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 159542 (N.D. Ind. Sep. 19, 2018).

The motorist was arrested at the stationhouse, not the Walgreens where the stop started. There was probable cause for the arrest. Mannino v. Dir. of Revenue, 2018 Mo. App. LEXIS 1117 (Sep. 18, 2018).*
