As you all probably know, In NY its against the law to use a cell phone while driving if you are not using a hands free kit. So im sitting there in a parking lot laying low (traffic duty) and here comes this lilttle ole hyundai driving about 10 under the limit. So I shine the spot light in the car as it drove by and noticed that the passenger had a black object to the drivers head. Im thinking its a gun so i get on the horn to call in the calvery. We get about 3 units with me and we decide to light em up. We aproach the car at gun point after we pull them out with a felony stop. What we see on the seat is a VERY large cell phone. Turns out the passenger was holding the phone to the drivers ear so they would not be breaking the law. The phone was so old they didnt even make hands-free devices for it. My question is HONESTLY, do you think that that would qualify as a hands free device (someone elses hand)? What would you have done ? I felt so stupid that i called the calvery on a cell phone user that when everyone left, i just gave them a a warning not to do it again(no ticket).But do you think my ticket would have held up in court ?
