State v Binks

Binks appealed the denial of his motion to suppress. The Court affirmed holding police had reasonable suspicion to detain Binks based on two observed traffic violations, evidence Binks smelled of alcohol and had bloodshot eyes and the fact he had just come form a house where police discovered Binks had purchased methamphetamine and thus the traffic stop and detention were reasonable. The Court decline to analyze the legal issues surrounding the scope of a warrant authorizing detention of people at or leaving the house or vehicles parked by or leaving the house.
