FL5: Police report’s stating search was search incident isn’t binding at the suppression hearing

The officer’s noting the search of defendant’s vehicle was incident to arrest was incorrect and not binding at the suppression hearing. It was valid as an inventory. State v. Koontz, 2021 Fla. App. LEXIS 9019 (Fla. 5th DCA June 18, 2021).

“We conclude, however, that the anonymous informants’ reliability and the basis for their knowledge was established by corroborating evidence they provided regarding details of the incident and by the description they provided of the vehicle and the individual seen fleeing the scene … and that the search warrant was supported by probable cause.” People v. Harlow, 2021 NY Slip Op 03933, 2021 N.Y. App. Div. LEXIS 4088 (4th Dept. June 17, 2021).*

School corporal punishment claims are Fourteenth Amendment claims in this circuit, not Fourth Amendment claims. T.O. v. Fort Bend Indep. Sch. Dist., 2021 U.S. App. LEXIS 18134 (5th Cir. June 17, 2021).*
