Dr. Gary D. Rodwell Dr. Gary Rodwell is a 53 year-old African-American man who resides in Baltimore, MD. Mr. Rodwell is a Vice-President of the ACLU of Maryland's Board of Directors. He is faculty in the Community College Leadership Doctoral Program in the Advanced Leadership ad Policy Studies Department at Morgan State University. He is also managing partner of Rodwell Development Group. He is a graduate of Howard University and achieved a doctorate in public administration from the University of Southern California. Mr. Rodwell's son, who was a Cub Scout when his father was pulled over, is now an incoming freshman at Bowie State University. When his son was much younger and attending Northwood Elementary School in Baltimore, Rodwell twice a month traveled from Philadelphia to Baltimore to attend school with his son.
During one of these trips, on January 17, 1996, Mr. Rodwell was stopped, detained for three hours, and searched twice - once by a drug-detecting dog, and once by hand - by Maryland State Police as he traveled south through Harford County on Interstate 95. These actions were taken because the trooper said Mr. Rodwell looked like a drug dealer. The trooper pressured and argued with Rodwell for about 40 minutes, but Rodwell would not consent to an unjustified search of his car and belongings. Then the trooper called in a canine unit and had the dog scan the vehicle for drugs. Although it was apparent to Mr. Rodwell that the dog did not alert during this scan, the trooper claimed that the dog had alerted, and proceeded to search the car and Rodwell's personal belongings by hand, with the help of two other troopers. No contraband of any kind was turned up during this extensive search.
Angered by the fruitlessness of his efforts, the lead trooper told Mr. Rodwell he was going to lock him up anyway, causing Mr. Rodwell severe anxiety. Later, however, a tow truck arrived at the scene. The trooper consulted with the tow truck driver and told Rodwell the driver was taking his car to the police barrack. Mr. Rodwell joined the driver in the tow truck, and the driver asked him if he had any money. Rodwell said he did not have much money with him, but that he could obtain some from a bank machine. The driver then took Rodwell to an ATM machine, where he withdrew $80 dollars to pay the driver an alleged towing fee. Only upon his payment of this fee was Mr. Rodwell given back his car and allowed to go on his way.
