McKee also testified that Robinson failed to comply with his first order to put his hands up and kept reaching for his waistband. These facts provided justification for McKee to pull his weapon and for the other officers to handcuff and frisk Robinson to effectuate the valid Terry stop.” United States v. Robinson, 2020 U.S. App. LEXIS 25589 (3d Cir. Aug. 12, 2020).
