ID: RS as to driver and officer safety extends to passenger, too

When a traffic stop turns into reasonable suspicion for other crime, the reasonable suspicion extends to being able to control the passenger, too, for officer safety. There is no reasoned basis for differentiating between drivers and passengers for officer safety. State v. Warren, 2021 Ida. LEXIS 149 (Sept. 22, 2021).

After drugs were found on the driver, it was reasonable to ask the passenger about drugs, too. United States v. India, 2021 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 181563 (N.D.Ohio Sept. 23, 2021).*

No COA on habeas claim for blood test that supposedly violates the Fourth Amendment because the claim is barred. Barnhart v. Turner, 2021 U.S. App. LEXIS 28778 (6th Cir. Sept. 22, 2021).*

Defendant’s surveillance DVR was properly seized without a warrant under exigent circumstances. The police obtained a search warrant before searching it. Ramirez v. State, 2021 Ind. LEXIS 591 (Sept. 23, 2021).
