CASE ENTRY

United States v. Landeros

Pascua Yaqui, Ariz. cop pulls over car for speeding. Driver provides identification but front-seat passenger refuses demands for ID. And that refusal was not a constitutional basis for prolonging the traffic stop, says Ninth Circuit, so the six bullets later found in the passenger’s pockets (giving rise to a felon-in-possession charge) should have been suppressed.
