What is a felony stop?

Most of us are familiar with routine traffic stops. These occur when a police officer observes a driver violating a traffic law. They are usually uneventful unless the officer finds probable cause to arrest the driver for a crime such as DUI or drug possession.

When an officer approaches a stopped vehicle, he or she usually does so without knowing who is in that vehicle or what the driver or passengers will do. Police officers receive training about how to conduct traffic stops and human nature tells them to be on their guard as they approach stopped vehicles. As a result, if a driver or a passenger makes a sudden move, the situation can escalate very quickly.
