D.Nev.: Criminal history didn’t justify extending stop

Officers exceeded the bounds of the traffic stop because they heard defendant’s criminal history and then ordered him out of the car to seek consent to search without any reasonable suspicion. United States v. Coleman, 2019 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 152832 (D. Nev. Sept. 9, 2019).

Officers had probable cause for defendant’s arrest on a warrant because he resembled the person sought. His efforts to flee the arrest amounted to a crime, and he wasn’t privileged to ignore the officers and attempt to run them down. Miller v. State, 2019 Ga. App. LEXIS 492 (Sept. 9, 2019).*

Defendant’s objection to the R&R’s finding of probable cause wasn’t specific at all, but his own confession and other evidence justified the search warrant for his email account and Facebook to look for evidence of his earlier possession of a firearm. United States v. Bear, 2019 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 152783 (D. S.D. Sept. 9, 2019).*
