Highlight

An officer arresting a passenger in a vehicle can search the driver's purse incident to the arrest without violating the driver's Fourth Amendment rights. State v. Gilberts, 497 N.W.2d 93 (N.D. 1993), is overruled to the extent it is contrary to this holding.
A police officer cannot, consistent with the Fourth Amendment, direct a person to leave a purse in a vehicle and then proceed to search the purse incident to the arrest of another passenger in the vehicle.
