Court Documents state that a female passenger was present and appeared “very nervous… fidgeting while seated and fumbling through a bag.” Further stating that her eyes were red, glassy and she grinded her teeth as she spoke.” Tedtaotao informed the officers that because he is a parolee he is subject to search by officers at any time. A search of the bag and vehicle was conducted resulting in the discovery of ice, pipes, and syringes containing ice residue.
