So back to the OP's scenerio. Let's say it was videotaped that the guy asked for the search warrant, was denied and threatened with arrest if he persisted in seeing the search warrant before allowing officers entry.

1. If there was a valid search warrant that was "in the computer" or left on someone's desk, is the search still legal?

2. If there was no search warrant, was it a legal search since the guy "allowed" the search? (I hope to TFSM that it's a no since he was threatened with arrest if he didn't allow it.)
