June 27, 2015- In 2011, Richard Gonzalez yelled obscenities at NYPD in a subway station. They claimed that he was disorderly, thus allowing them to search him. They found a knife, and he was sentenced to three years in jail.
The appeals court ruled that his yelling was not a “potential or immediate public problem”, therefore not disorderly warranting an arrest and search. The ruling is found here.
