Rules on Search and Seizure
May the police search you without a warrant?
That depends on whether you are under arrest. If the police have lawfully arrested you, they are permitted to search you. They also are allowed to search the area under your immediate control (also known as your wingspan, or where you can reach). They could then use that evidence against you in court.
