DC: Possession of a knife doesn’t mean RS for possession of a firearm

A warrant for premises found a visitor there, and the record shows nothing about why he was searched and the trial court upheld it. “As discussed, the factors the trial court relied upon to validate the patdown of Mr. Bingman—his presence at a site the police were authorized pursuant to a warrant to search for marijuana and marijuana paraphernalia, and his possession of a knife of unknown description—do not support a reasonable determination that he was armed and dangerous.” Bingman v. United States, 2022 D.C. App. LEXIS 29 (Jan. 27, 2022) (2-1).

The officer’s tone and statements during the stop revealed on the bodycam showed defendant did not consent to the search. State v. Jackson, 2022-Ohio-187, 2022 Ohio App. LEXIS 185 (8th Dist. Jan. 27, 2022).
