Maryland v. Pringle case brief

    1. Maryland v. Pringle case brief summary

      1. Pringle and 2 others were pulled over for speeding and arrested for having bags of coke and rolled up money. The driver consented to a search of the vehicle.
      2. The cop found the drugs and asked whose it was, no one confessed so he arrested all of them.
      3. Pringle waived his Miranda rights and confessed that the coke was his. Pringle is trying to suppress his confession as the fruit of an illegal arrest.
      4. Different from Ybarra because the police had a warrant to search the tavern and not the customers.
        1. It’s a car it’s not a public place.
        2. It was only 3 people and it had to have been one of theirs.
          1. Being in a car with drugs late at night gives probable cause.
      5. Ybarra: being in the wrong place at the wrong time does not give rise to probable cause.
