He explained a car sqarch usually results from the officer's own ob- servations which he must affirm Second of three stories gave him "probable cause." This includes the officer's Witnessing a criiiid commilled (including a i'r'jiff-. ic .violation) ..contraband, .in .plain otherwise jdelectible' (such .of suspicious movement from the indi-. vidual, indicating a possible viola- tion.

Larry Faults, who heads Ihe Special Services Bureau.-says his of- ficers usually try to get'written con- sent because it holds up better than 'oral consent in court. Judge Ingalsbe notes it: iii ay be the resident's word against.the offi- cer's if Ihe individual denies giving oral consent. But more often, the individual may say coerced- into allowing search, claiming the officer-stilted he could ;i warrant later-if the search wasn't allowed immediately.

INGALSBE SAID this question has been on appeal several limes" but has not held up. --Finally, an' individual has the ..Constitutional right "to in his home." -Newman said that under very special circumstances a case of "justifiable homicide" could re- sult from: :i sloppily handled situa- tion where police barge into a room, guns drawn, and fail lo identify themselves.
