US v. Smith, No. 08-3642

By FindLaw Staff on July 30, 2009 4:42 PM

In a prosecution for drug- and firearm-related offenses, grant of defendant's motion to suppress all physical evidence and statements stemming from his encounter with police is reversed where the court erred when it held defendant was seized prior to his physical contact with the officers as there was no show of authority by the police officers in the first alleged seizure, and he did not indicate submission to the officers' show of authority in the second alleged seizure.
