Top US court limits detention powers during police search

The US Supreme Court on Tuesday limited the ability of police to detain a suspect who has left a site that officers have come to search, even if they find potentially incriminating evidence. The case involves Chunon Bailey, a man from Long Island, New York who was sentenced to 30 years in prison on drug and weapons charges. Police had Bailey's apartment under surveillance, and followed Bailey on July 28, 2005 when he left the apartment.
