SEARCH INCIDENT TO LAWFUL ARREST

A search is reasonable, and a search warrant is not required, if a search is conducted as an incident to a lawful arrest.

Under this exception to the search warrant requirement, an arresting officer may search only the person arrested and the area within which that person might gain possession of a weapon or might destroy or hide evidence.
