Arizona v. Gant, 556 U.S. 332
Overview: Where officers searched respondent's car after arresting him, handcuffing him, and locking him in a patrol car, the search-incident-to-arrest exception did not justify the search under the Fourth Amendment, because he clearly was not within reaching distance of his car at the time of the search and an evidentiary basis for the search was lacking.
