N.D.Ala.: Def failed to prove he was an overnight guest with standing

Defendant lacked standing where he purported to be an overnight guest, but the host said no. United States v. Spencer, 2020 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 191102 (N.D. Ala. Sept. 4, 2020), adopted, 2020 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 190308 (N.D. Ala. Oct. 14, 2020).

The police received an anonymous tip of erratic driving on I-84, and the officer found the vehicle and tailed it, observing the same things. This was probable cause [not just reasonable suspicion] for a stop. State v. Byrum, 2020 Ida. App. LEXIS 76 (Oct. 15, 2020).*
