Is it within my rights to insist that he wear a blindfold?

I tee-hee'd on longPath's reply...

But more specifically, probable cause comes into play here. Same as searching your ass. Location is likely to have an influence - "oh... you're bringing in a pinata from Mexico, huh? Darn, I wish I was allowed to search pinatas...." :D
