Search Incident to Arrest for Minor Warrant Authorized State v. Ciasulli (UNP)

In this morning’s UNPUBLISHED Appellate Division holding in State v. Ciasulli, the Court ruled that a search of the defendant’s person incident to a valid arrest is authorized under New Jersey law due to issues of officer safety. This rule of law applies even if the underlying reason for the arrest is an FTA bench warrant issued for a minor municipal court violation.
