“I moved on her, actually. You know, she was down on Palm Beach. I moved on her, and I failed. I’ll admit it……I did try and fuck her. She was married………and I moved on her very heavily. In fact, I took her out furniture shopping. She wanted to get some furniture. I said, “I’ll show you where they have some nice furniture.” I took her out furniture — I moved on her like a bitch.

Search warrants must specify the place to be searched, as well as items to be seized.
