AR: RS shown for boating while intoxicated stop

There was reasonable suspicion for stopping defendant on his jet ski because he was operating it unsafely. Damron v. State, 2024 Ark. App. 274 (Apr. 24, 2024).*

Defendant has the initial burden of showing he was subjected to a warrantless search to shift the burden to the government. His affidavit about the search didn’t specify, so the district court did not err. In any event, any possible error was harmless. United States v. Garcia, 2024 U.S. App. LEXIS 9832 (5th Cir. Apr. 23, 2024).*

“The totality of the circumstances here, viewed in the light most favorable to the Commonwealth, support that court’s conclusion that Officer Labat had objective reasonable suspicion at the time of the seizure to detain the appellant to investigate whether he lawfully possessed the firearm whose outline Labat could clearly see in his pocket.” Alvin v. Commonwealth, 2024 Va. App. LEXIS 230 (Apr. 23, 2024).*
