For officer's safety, Deputy Meyers asked Morgan to place his hand where Deputy Meyer could observe them. Morgan did not comply and turned his left shoulder inward towards the vehicle's front passenger seat as if he was trying to conceal something he was holding in his hand. As Morgan moved, Deputy Meyer observed a glass cylindrical pipe with a brass filter and burn markings. Deputy Meyer recognized the pipe to be a smoking device for controlled dangerous substances.
