I believe my answer is correct. While a cop can search if you are arrested, they cannot legally unless they have a search warrant.

MrG, according to this:
Police officers do not need a warrant to make a search “incident to an arrest.” After an arrest, police officers have the right to protect themselves by searching for weapons and to protect the legal case against the suspect by searching for evidence that the suspect might try to destroy.

I believe deb's answer is the correct one, The source you provided (same as deb's) says: "There are many situations where police may legally conduct a search without first obtaining a warrant."

A police officer may use as much physical force as is reasonably necessary to make an arrest.

I understand your point, MrG, but I agree that you can be searched during an arrest.

MrG, from your original source: When a person is placed under arrest, the police may search the person and the immediate surroundings for weapons that might be used to harm the officer.
