De novo review (apparently) means looking at the dashcam video: “Upon our review of the video, we find, as did the district court, Hales’s vehicle was ‘drifting left and traveling over the dividing line of the lanes’ at 12:30 in the morning. The officer, based upon his observations as disclosed by this patrol vehicle recording, had a reasonable suspicion that Hales was operating his vehicle while intoxicated. The stop was justified and constitutional.” State v. Hales, 2021 Iowa App. LEXIS 53 (Jan. 21, 2021).
Defendant was stopped for riding his bicycle on the sidewalk, and he voluntarily consented to search of his backpack. State v. Conkey, 2021 Iowa App. LEXIS 43 (Jan. 21, 2021).*
Probable cause and nexus were shown in the search warrant application based on CIs and a jail call. State v. Bracy, 2021 Iowa App. LEXIS 47 (Jan. 21, 2021).*
