A good example of probable cause would be if a police officer pulls over a motorist for a traffic infraction and sees the motorist smoking a marijuana joint. The officer has probable cause that another crime is being perpetrated and can thus search the suspect and car without a warrant based on what he saw.

A cop who smells pot smoke from a residence would have probable cause. A person screaming loudly could be probable cause to enter a residence. A car swerving in the lane would be probable cause for a stop.
