GA: When there is PC for an arrest, the validity of an arrest warrant is moot

There was probable cause for defendant’s arrest, so the validity of the arrest warrant doesn’t matter. Harper v. State, 2021 Ga. LEXIS 2 (Jan. 11, 2021).

Defendant’s claim of lack of probable cause is really just an effort to construe the affidavit differently, but that violates the deferential standard of review. Palmer v. State, 2021 Ga. LEXIS 3 (Jan. 11, 2021).*

An open container is justification for a traffic stop. United States v. Cantie, 2021 U.S. App. LEXIS 594 (6th Cir. Jan. 11, 2021).*
