Three D.C. police officers involved in the stop testified in a hearing on whether to suppress the evidence.

Sgt. Timothy Evans of the 1st District’s Street Crime/Power Shift unit, who supervised the stop, testified that the purpose of the roadblock was to reduce speeding. The judge said no evidence in the case showed that any speeding tickets or warnings were issued.

Another officer testified that he never received instructions on what to look for or ask for at a roadblock.
