MUSKEGON, Mich. (AP) - The Michigan Supreme Court is hearing arguments in a case about drugs, a license plate and a towing ball.

Muskegon County deputies found a gun and drugs when they stopped Charles Dunbar in his Ford Ranger. But the appeals court threw out the evidence, saying the stop was illegal.

The appeals court said there’s nothing wrong with a towing ball partially blocking a license plate. The state Supreme Court is hearing arguments Wednesday.

A group of Michigan prosecutors believes the appeals court made the wrong call. But even if the decision is upheld, prosecutors say the deputies were acting in good faith and evidence from the traffic stop shouldn’t be suppressed.
