Under appropriate circumstances, a law enforcement officer who previously lacked even reasonable suspicion to detain, by discovering a valid warrant, gains probable cause not just to detain, but to arrest. If an officer engaging in a consensual encounter with a citizen discovers an arrest warrant, the subsequent arrest is valid and any evidence discovered during a search incident to arrest is admissible, subject to inquiry into whether an illegal detention occurred. State v. Hummons, CR 10-0309-PR (236 P.3d 1201 (2010)).
