Can police search your text messages if you get caught for speeding?


Techdirt links to an article by criminal law professor Adam Gershowitz about the frightening prospect of police searching your text messages if you get stopped for a traffic infraction. Ever heard of the doctrine of "search incident to arrest?" Such a seach may not be limited to text messages -- how about everything on your cell phone, including browsing history, emails, and voicemails?

I haven't read the full article yet; I'm just not ready to look at it. Fourth Amendment issues make me a little crazy.
