He did the right thing, never let a cop search your car without a warrant.

Social media is going to be undoing of today's society. Do athletes realize how foolish they look with these tweets? How can anyone read that and not think "what an idiot."

What would be really funny would be if this happened in Maryland, and he ended up getting ticketed because of the tweets for texting while behind the wheel of a car.

Agreed. But to tweet the whole episode complete with vulgarities is just foolish.

For me Rashard Mendenhall's 9-11 comments right after we killed Bin Laden took the cake for Twitter fails.

The knuckleheaded-ness of some of these athletes on Twitter can be entertaining, but I agree with McNabb- these guys need to stay away from the tweets:

Good for him, sounds like the only thing he was guilty of was driving an expensive car while being African-American. Agree that some ridiculous stuff gets said on Twitter but this is certainly not an example of that.

Wow...how is this a big deal. The car was stopped, he wasn't driving relax -- athletes (and people in general) have done far worse things on twitter

Ha, ha, Ok.

I'll say this... if the officer is "asking" to search your car then he/she more then likely does not have the probable cause to search inside. Be polite, be respectful, don't be sarcastic, simply say no because you don't have time for it because your late for a date or appointment or need to get home. The Supreme Court has said no means no. The police can not "swindle" you into letting them search the vehicle as in saying "why won't you let us search it? If you don't have anything to hide then you'd let us search it."

However keep in mind some officers do ask to search even though they have found probable cause to search. Why? I don't know. If you have the probable cause they simply should be saying "I'm going to search your car because I found (whatever) in your car." If they have it they will tell you.

But I laugh because technicall they can keep you on the side of the road for up to 2 hrs roughly per Supreme Court rulings. Depending on if you have been stopped before and contraband found depends on whether they will go through the whole process of getting a search warrant. It's much easier to simply call the K-9 to come sniff around your vehicle, which if the dog signals the vehicle has contrabrand inside is probable cause for the officer to search inside. On a side note.... sometimes when the dog smells contrabrand they tend to scratch at the vehicle sometimes leaving scratches on the outside, and if the dog hits and they send the dog inside because you still don't want to "get caught" the dog sometimes tears up the seats scratching at them if the contrabrand is inside or under them. I've never heard of someone successfully getting reimbursed for damage done to their vehicle when contrabrand has been found.

There is an old saying.... inocent people have nothing to hide. However I too don't like the overzealous officer. So .... if you got the time to sit on the side of the road for up to 2 hrs protecting your civil rights then enjoy it. But also remember .... if the officer is stopping you because you broke the law, the officer does have the option of writing you a ticket [B]or [/B]taking you into custody, towing your vehicle (which requires a "inventory search"), and taking you to the Magistrate. No matter how petty the offense.

Simply put ... don't break the law. and most of all.......

Well they don't need a warrant for normal folks, they'll just claim the patriot act

They didn't give him a ticket so I guess the officers were fcking morons for wasting tax payer money.
