TX2: Slow to pull over and furtive movements is RS

When the officer is attempting to pull over a car for a traffic offense, being slow to stop and furtive movements in the car become reasonable suspicion to extend the stop. Moore v. State, 2023 Tex. App. LEXIS 7343 (Tex. App. – Ft. Worth Sep. 21, 2023).

Due to defendant’s emails and social media, “The Court finds that officers had reasonable suspicion to believe that Wright was engaged in criminal activity-specifically, ex-felon-failure-to-register and felon-in-possession-of-a-firearm-sufficient for them to stop the vehicle in which he was riding to investigate and identify him.” United States v. Wright, 2023 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 167407 (D. Nev. Aug. 15, 2023).*

Lack of proof of insurance was reasonable suspicion to extend the stop. United States v. Diaz-Sanchez, 2023 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 167640 (D. Or. Sep. 19, 2023).*
