State v. Williams, ___ N.C. App. ___, 804 S.E.2d 570 (Aug. 15, 2017)

Because the trial court summarily denied the defendant’s motion to suppress, a full hearing with sworn testimony was not required under G.S. 15A-977 (motion to suppress procedure). The defendant’s own affidavit clearly laid out facts establishing that the officer had reasonable suspicion to detain the defendant. The information presented in the affidavit was sufficient to allow the trial court to determine that the defendant’s allegation did not merit a full suppression hearing because the affidavit did not as a matter of law support the ground alleged for suppression.
