I am hoping that someone can help me. First, I am a female so please don't bash me too much
My husband openly carries in VA everyday. He was working on Sunday and had to travel into Mayland to estimate a few jobs. He put his handgun under his seat. He took off his seatbelt to get his money for the toll. When he took it off he got pulled over for not wearing his seatbelt.
The Balitmore Transportation Authority asked him why he was shaking so bad. My husband informed the officer that he has a medical condition causing trimmers, and has medical doctumention of this. The officer said it made him nervous, so he placed him under arrest.
Once handcuffed and standing at the police car,another officer started searchingthe truck after my husband informed them they can't. While officer "A" was searching the truck, officer "B" asked if there was anything in there. At that point my husband stated he had a gun. So, I guess my question is, Are they allowed to search the vechial after they place him under arrest? If not what do I do from here??
He has to go back on the 28th of this month for the firarm charge. My husband is very knowlegeable when it come to this stuff, (Although, he is an idiot for taking it into MD, when he knows better) but I want a little more insite.
BTW...He does have a voice recorder. The recording came out pretty crappy though. We also have a lawyer, so i am looking for additional view points to disscus with him.
Thank you for your help.
