Anonymous Tip

Florida DUI Expert Attorney, Lawyer W.F. “Casey” Ebsary, Jr., whose main office is in Tampa, notes a recent ruling where an anonymous tip that reported reckless driving did not provide reasonable basis for traffic stop. The court noted that even though the suspect vehicle matched the description provided by the tipster, the reported illegal conduct was not corroborated by any police observations. Somewhat entertaining – Wooden bumper and missing side mirror were not traffic infractions and could not provide a lawful basis to support the traffic stop. Motion to Suppress granted.
