State v. Mello, 200 N.C. App. 561 (Nov. 3, 2009)

aff’d per curiam, 364 N.C. 421 (Oct. 8, 2010)

A city ordinance prohibiting loitering for the purpose of engaging in drug-related activity is unconstitutionally overbroad. Additionally, one subsection of the ordinance is void for vagueness, and another provision violates the Fourth Amendment by allowing the police to arrest in the absence of probable cause.
