CA5: Protective sweep reasonable after def first barricaded himself and then surrendered

A protective sweep was justified on defendant’s arrest after he’d barricaded himself inside and then gave up. United States v. Hernandez, 2020 U.S. App. LEXIS 17027 (5th Cir. May 28, 2020).

Petitioner isn’t entitled to a writ of mandamus for arrest notes to enable him to challenge chain of custody by a motion to suppress [which isn’t the remedy anyway; it would be admissibility at trial] which he admittedly has. Johnson v. State, 2020 Del. Super. LEXIS 256 (May 26, 2020).*

An Enterprise rental vehicle without a bar code and the strong smell of air freshener was reasonable suspicion to at least ask questions and extend the stop. United States v. Garner, 2020 U.S. App. LEXIS 17105 (3d Cir. May 29, 2020).*
