CA9: Neighbor’s 911 call about burglary justified police entry protective sweep

A 911 burglary call by defendant’s neighbor led to police coming to the house, and the police entered to look for suspects. This was a reasonable entry based on exigency. United States v. Booth, 2020 U.S. App. LEXIS 28377 (9th Cir. Sept. 8, 2020).

Defendant was stopped on I-84 and the officer stopped for concern he was illegally parked on the highway. The state didn’t have to prove that I-84 was a controlled access highway [and why couldn’t that be subject to judicial notice?] for there to be reasonable suspicion. State v. Jay, 2020 Ida. App. LEXIS 67 (Sept. 8, 2020).*
