Holdings:

The Virginia Court made the following holding:
  • Reckless driving is a Class 1 misdemeanor. Va. Code Ann. § 46.2-868. The police have statutory authority to arrest for a misdemeanor traffic offense committed in an officer’s presence. Va. Code Ann. § 19.2-81. Once a defendant is lawfully arrested for reckless driving, an officer is authorized to undertake a related search of the vehicle’s passenger compartment. A custodial arrest of a suspect based on probable cause is a reasonable intrusion under the Fourth Amendment; that intrusion being lawful, a search incident to the arrest requires no additional justification..
