State of Ohio v. Sherry Tidwell, Case No. 2020-0290
First District Court of Appeals (Hamilton County)
- Is an unidentified man's warning to a police officer about a motorist in a parking lot enough to qualify the tipster as a citizen informant whose tip merits a high degree of credibility?
- Does a citizen informant's tip, which doesn't provide predictive information, create sufficiently reasonable suspicion for a police officer to make an investigatory stop of a motorist?
