This ONLY applies to those Under Arrest or Detention

Cops CAN NOT just demand your cellphone if they have you pulled over for a traffic infraction. More specifically, they can ask for it but you have NO LEGAL REQUIREMENT to hand it over to them on request or demand.


This law states they can search your phone AFTER you've been arrested or legally detained pursuant to arrest without a warrent.

Expect cops to try and stretch the meaning of this law to include them searching your phone during a traffic stop or other contact. And expect knowledgeable citizens to tell them to go pound sand!
