Defendant was free to cross-examine on all of that to mitigate prejudice [if he could]. State v. Booth, 2022-NCCOA-679, 2022 N.C. App. LEXIS 709 (Oct. 18, 2022).

The officer’s encounter with defendant on foot who stopped his car on his own and the officer approached was consensual. People v. Tolliver, 2022 IL App (2d) 210080, 2022 Ill. App. LEXIS 446 (Oct. 17, 2022).*
