US Supreme Court will take up anonymous tip, traffic stop issue
from The Associated Press via Law Officer
Two men driving a truck in California were pulled over for reckless driving, but they were not observed by the officer who conducted the stop. An anonymous tip was called in, alerting law enforcement to the vehicle's erratic driving. The stop later resulted in the men pleading guilty to a subsequent charge of transporting marijuana, but state and federal courts still disagree about whether it is lawful to pull a car over for an unobserved offense.
