Facts: Mr. Belton with three other persons was in an over speeding car and were arrested by trooper for over speeding. In the process, the police discovered an envelope of marijuana and as a result decided to search further and he found Bolton’s jacket with cocaine. Bolton was charged by the Supreme Court for having illegally acquired a controlled substance. However, he filed a petition claiming that his privacy was intruded without his consent and the request for the ruling to be reversed, was granted by the court of appeal.
Issue: Bolton urged that the fact that they were arrested for over speeding did not give the trooper the right to search their property. This was inappropriate intrusion of their privacy and hence a violation of the knock-and-announce rule.
