Describes the October 31, 1963 arrest of John W. Terry, Richard D. Chilton and Carl Katz by Cleveland Police Detective Martin McFadden. This arrest led to the 1968 Supreme Court case, Terry v. Ohio, in which the Court set a precedent that allows police officers to stop, interrogate and frisk suspects without probable cause for an arrest, providing that the officer can articulate a reasonable basis for the stop and frisk.
