CA4: Tip describing man with a gun found a block away walking away was RS

Bystander’s tip that a black man in red pants and a black shirt had left a large fight at a West Virginia bar going east after having displayed a gun. A block away to the east, officers found defendant walking away from the bar. There was reasonable suspicion for the stop. United States v. Mitchell, (4th Cir. June 30, 2020) (2-1).

Backup officer with drug dog could use the dog on the car while the ticket was being written because it didn’t extend the stop. State v. Boyce, 2020-Ohio-3573, 2020 Ohio App. LEXIS 2517 (2d Dist. July 2, 2020).*

“Those articulable facts—and, in particular, Reyes’s implausible stories—combine to establish reasonable suspicion.” United States v. Reyes, 2020 U.S. App. LEXIS 20687 (5th Cir. July 1, 2020).*
