The Pennsylvania Superior Court ruled that a passenger’s nervous behavior during a routine traffic stop is sufficient to sustain an officer’s reasonable suspicion of criminal activity. A trooper stopped a vehicle for traveling 64 mph in a 55 mph zone. The trooper gave the driver a warning, and the passenger — the defendant — provided his name, date of birth, and social security number. The trooper detained the men for a K-9 search which uncovered drugs. The defendant filed a suppression motion. The trooper testified at the suppression hearing that the passenger was extremely nervous and sweaty. He further testified that “a passenger in the vehicle should never be that nervous. He’s not in trouble for anything.” The defendant and driver claimed they had driven to Philadelphia for cheesesteaks (Ishkabibble’s, if you must know) and were on their way home. The trial court granted suppression, but the Superior Court reversed based on such dubious logic as “it unusual for someone who is struggling financially to drive from Delaware to Philadelphia, pay for parking, and purchase a cheesesteak on Christmas Eve.”
