Facts

Chunon Bailey (defendant) left his apartment just before police entered it to conduct a lawful search. Officers conducting surveillance saw Bailey leave his apartment and drive away. The officers followed Bailey’s car for a mile before pulling him over. The officers ordered Bailey out of the car, patted him down, and handcuffed him. Bailey was then transported in a patrol car back to his apartment, where a gun and drugs had been seized. Bailey was arrested and charged with felony drug and firearms offenses. Bailey moved to suppress items seized during his pat down and statements he had made to police while he was detained, arguing that they were obtained through an unreasonable seizure. The trial court denied Bailey’s motion, finding that his detention was permissible because it occurred incident to the execution of a search warrant. The court of appeals affirmed, holding that the officers had stopped Bailey at the earliest practicable location compatible with the safety of the officers and the public. The United States Supreme Court granted certiorari.
