Criminal Practice – Search & Seizure – Flight – Resisting Arrest – No Probable Cause (access required)

State v. White Responding to a noise complaint, police officers saw defendant running away and arrested him for resisting a public officer. With no showing that it was the police that defendant was running away from or that he was involved in the source of the noise complaint or any other illegal activity, the state failed to show that the police had probable cause to arrest defendant. We reverse the trial court’s denial of defendant’s motion to suppress evidence that the police gathered as a result of his arrest.
