CA9: Police get a 911 call that def is yelling and threatening somebody in house; exigency based entry justified after talking to him

Police get a 911 call that a man was yelling and screaming at and threatening somebody, and they come to the house. At the door, defendant admits that he was because he was stressed out about “issues.” He also admitted that there was another person inside. Entry was justified under the emergency exception. The district court’s denial of a hearing on the voluntariness of consent is moot. United States v. Guillen, 2018 U.S. App. LEXIS 33482 (9th Cir. Nov. 29, 2018).*

The officer conducting a traffic stop and a report from other officers that defendant was likely carrying methamphetamine, and it was based on fairly detailed information. When a traffic stop occurred, the officer was concerned that the occupants were “too stiff” to conceal their true emotions. There was reasonable suspicion for a dog sniff. United States v. Ballard, 2018 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 202286 (C.D. Ill. Oct. 25, 2018).*
