As a follow-up to the closed thread: UPDATE: Kid in Birmingham Mi Open carrying a rifle is going to be tried
"Michigan is an open carry state, meaning it’s legal for anyone over the age of 18 to openly carry firearms. Nor is it required in Michigan for people to carry identification.
A jury acquitted Combs on two of the charges, while the third was dismissed by 48th District Court Judge Marc Barron. Combs filed his civil lawsuit in October 2012 in U.S. District Court, claiming his Fourth Amendment rights had been violated through false arrest and false imprisonment. He also filed a malicious prosecution claim.
According to the city’s release, Judge Victoria Roberts, dismissed the claims on the grounds that Combs’ “youthful appearance” justified the police officers asking to see his identification:
“The Court found that under the totality of the circumstances, including Mr. Combs’ youthful appearance, the police officers’ requests for proof that Mr. Combs was 18 constituted a lawful command; and Mr. Combs’ refusal to provide such proof gave the police officers probable cause to arrest him for resisting their lawful command.”
