    Watch the video above from “COPS” showing a search incident to arrest conducted by an officer. After watching the video from “COPS” of the officer arresting the man for driving with a suspended license, do you believe the officer’s actions complied with the new procedures established under Gant? Was the officer’s search of the driver justified?
    Arizona v. Gant,

    1. Was the search of the passenger justified?
    2. Was the search of the vehicle justified?

    Bonus (5 points): Using the scenario in the video above can you think of any other justification or circumstance in that situation in which the police would be able to examine the contents of that vehicle? Explain?
