Accordingly, probable cause to arrest and detain is extant when the police arrest and detain an individual within a premises pursuant to a valid search warrant (id. at 22; Hernandez v City of New York, 100 AD3d 433, 433 [1st Dept 2012]; Martinez v City of Schenectady, 97 NY2d 78, 85 [2001]; Broughton v State, 37 NY2d 451, 457 [1975]; Rivera v County of Nassau, 83 AD3d 1032, 1033 [2d Dept 2011]).

Since the gravamen of any finding of constructive possession is control over the area from which contraband is seized, when the absence of control over the specific area [*5]where contraband is found is lacking, constructive possession by the owner, lessor, or occupant of a premises is negated (People v Gatreaux-Perez, 31 AD3d 1209, 1210 [4th Dept 2006] ["The mere fact that defendant lived at the residence where the drugs were found is, without more, legally insufficient to establish that she exercised the requisite dominion or control over the drugs by a sufficient level of control over the area in which the drugs were found" (internal quotation marks omitted). Where the facts leading up to an arrest are undisputed, the existence of probable cause is an issue of law for the court to decide (Parkin v Cornell University, Inc., 78 NY2d 523, 529 [1991]; Burns v Eben, 40 NY 463, 466 [1869]; Wyllie v District Atty.

It is well settled that in this State, in cases alleging police misconduct, the law does not recognize a cause of action for general negligence or negligent investigation (Medina v City of New York, 102 AD3d 101, 108 [1st Dept 2012]; Johnson v Kings County Dist.

This, of course, fosters the long standing belief that the court system is open to all without fear of reprisal through the use of retaliatory lawsuits (Curiano v Suozzi, 63 NY2d 113, 119 [1984]). To establish constructive possession in this situation, it must be established that defendant had dominion and control over the area where the gun was found or admitted owning or using the gun" (internal citation and quotation marks omitted)]; People v Vastola, 70 AD2d 918, 918 [2d Dept 1979]; People v Casanova, 117 AD2d 742, 743 [2d Dept 1986]). ]; Bryant at 446 ["Given the complete absence of any factual allegations in the complaint regarding the alleged "policies" of the municipal defendants which led to the officers' conduct, or evidencing their approval or "ratification" of this conduct, the plaintiffs' causes of action against these defendants pursuant to 42 USC § 1983 were properly dismissed"]).

The analysis relative to constructive possession is no different with respect to a location deemed a public space, where the relevant inquiry is dominion and control over the location where contraband is found (People v Perez, 125 AD2d 236, 237—38 [1st Dept 1986] ["Where a gun is found in an area occupied by several people and where no one individual could be said to have dominion and control of the weapon, the People have a heavy burden in establishing constructive possession. "]; Sheila C. at 131 ["In this matter, plaintiff's allegations that defendants suggested she act provocatively, and allowed her to be introduced to a purported rapist, with whom she had a later, voluntary meeting, well after she was no longer in the physical custody of defendants, simply does not rise to the level of conduct necessary to sustain either cause of action.
