US v. Goodwin-Bey, No. 09-1317

By FindLaw Staff on October 28, 2009 | Last updated on March 21, 2019

Defendant's firearm possession conviction is affirmed where the district court did not err in denying defendant's motion to suppress the gun at issue because an earlier incident report regarding a vehicle resembling defendant's, along with the number of the vehicle's occupants, sufficiently implicated officer safety concerns to justify a search incident to arrest.
