A Philadelphia court suppressed drug evidence obtained during a traffic stop. The officer testified that the car was pulled over due to a faulty tail light. Mr. Nenner presented evidence that the car was in perfect working condition. He called the owner of the car and presented maintenance documents, including a recent state inspection, to show that the “broken tail light” was merely a pretext to pull the car over. The judge agreed and suppressed the evidence. As a result, the prosecution withdrew the charges.
