            A defendant appeals the district court’s denial of his motion to suppress, arguing the sheriff deputy exceeded a Terry search for weapons and his search was not incident to a lawful arrest.  OPINION HOLDS: The court properly denied the defendant’s motion as the deputy was authorized to make a lawful arrest when the defendant committed the simple misdemeanor in his presence.
