W.D.Ky.: Arrest warrant doesn’t require executing officer to check into PC for it

If there is an arrest warrant, the executing officer doesn’t have to look behind it to determine its validity. Other alleged probable cause for defendant’s stop is immaterial. United States v. Cox, 2022 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 7551 (W.D.Ky. Jan. 14, 2022).

A ShotSpotter alert four minutes earlier brought officers and defendant’s car was the only one in the area at the time. Defendant’s demeanor while walking suggested he had a gun on him. The stop was valid. When questioned, defendant said he just left a friend’s but he couldn’t name him. A patdown validly produced meth. State v. Carter, 2022-Ohio-91, 2022 Ohio App. LEXIS 78 (2d Dist. Jan. 13, 2022).*

Heck bar applies to plaintiff’s claim his parole was unlawfully extended. Brennan v. Allison, 2022 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 7312 (E.D.Cal. Jan. 12, 2022).*
