“Eighth Circuit holds that Arkansas law does not permit the police to arrest someone merely for refusing to identify himself”

Today’s ruling, by a unanimous three-judge Eighth Circuit panel, addresses “whether Arkansas law permits a police officer to arrest a person for refusing to identify himself when he is not suspected of other criminal activity and his identification is not needed to protect officer safety or to resolve whatever reasonable suspicions prompted the officer to initiate an on-going traffic stop or Terry stop.”
