Civil Rights – False Arrest Claim – DUI – Conspiracy – Wife’s Friend – Tort/Negligence (access required)

Freeland v. Simmons Where the defendant-state trooper saw plaintiff swerve and then turn without signaling, the trooper had probable cause to stop plaintiff. Where plaintiff smelled of alcohol, admitted to “having a few,” and performed poorly on field sobriety tests, the trooper had probable cause to arrest plaintiff for driving under the influence. Therefore, plaintiff’s constitutional rights were not violated by the traffic stop or arrest.
