CA6: It’s clearly established that RS or PC required for a traffic stop

It was clearly established at the time that reasonable suspicion or probable cause was required for a traffic stop. Fact issues remain, so no qualified immunity. King v. City of Rockford, 2024 U.S. App. LEXIS 7327 (6th Cir. Mar. 28, 2024).*

Plaintiff was alleged to have taken a car at gunpoint, and a police chase ensued. After he crashed from a PIT maneuver and fled the car, he was Tased and punched in the back of the head to subdue him. The force used was not unreasonable. Aguilar v. Knueppel, 2024 U.S. App. LEXIS 7213 (9th Cir. Mar. 27, 2024).*

There are undisputed facts showing qualified immunity. White v. Hamilton Cty., 2024 U.S. App. LEXIS 7263 (6th Cir. Mar. 25, 2024).*
