The Arizona Supreme Court's reversal of Defendant's drug conviction is affirmed, where police may search the passenger compartment of a vehicle incident to a recent occupant's arrest only if it is reasonable to believe that an arrestee might access the vehicle at the time of the search or that the vehicle contains evidence of the offense of arrest.
