Last weekend my friend was stopped by the police for a broken taillight. The officer asked if he had been drinking and he said that he had 2 beers. He passed the field test and he was told that he was free to go.
Then the officer said, “Hold on, I want to ask you a couple more questions.” He asked if he could search him (his person) and he agreed. The officer did not find anything. Then the officer asked if he had any illegal drugs or weapons in the car, and my friend told him that he did not. The officer asked to search the vehicle and my friend told him, no, because it had already been 45 minutes since he first stopped him. The officer told him that he had the right to let the dog go around the outside of the vehicle. The dog circled the vehicle 3 times. It was after that when the officer let him leave.
This occurred in NE. I tell everyone I know NEVER consent to a search! I tell them that because I found and read your website. I have this website saved in my favorites list on my computer so I can let my friends read it. Because of your website, many people have avoided arrests from illegal searches! THANK YOU SO MUCH!!!!!!!
