State v. Setterstrom

In State v. Setterstrom (2008) 163 Wash.2d 621, the police received an anonymous call that an individual who appeared to be under the influence of drugs was in the lobby of the welfare department. (Id. at p. 623.) When the police arrived, they found the defendant, who was nervous and fidgeting. (Id. at p. 624.) In response to questioning, he lied about his name. (Ibid.) The Washington Supreme Court held that the officer was not justified in pat searching the defendant. (Id. at pp. 627-628.)
