A Federal Judge recently ruled that a search by four Bronx cops that turned up a gun a man was carrying in his fanny pack was legal because they had grounds to move a stop to a frisk.
The officers passed Michael Hagood last fall when one thought he saw the outline of a gun in his fanny pack. When they ordered Mr. Hagood to stop, he tried to flee. During the struggle, one cop felt what he thought was a firearm in the fanny pack. A search produced a 9mm. gun.
