Cook v. State (2nd COA)

A defendant’s home may be a “suspicious place” under Code of Criminal Procedure Article 14.03 to justify a warrantless arrest. Any place may be “suspicious” when there is a reasonable belief that a person at that place has committed a crime and exigent circumstances call for immediate police action. In general, a place is suspicious only if there is a very short timeframe between the crime and the presence of the defendant in that place. Read.
