Re: Officer Admitted That He Ran My Plates for No Reason and Pulled Me Over. is It Le
I got pulled over. Officer did a u-turn while I was driving down the street and followed behind me. Now he may had just did a uturn just because he was headed in opposite direction.
But he was behind me for awhile then he drove along side me and then got behind me again.
Good. t is usually best to take care of these things immediately. That will put you in a better light than if you ignored it even after being cited.
Well he pulled me over. i showed him my license and registration. Come to find out I'am suspended for a traffic ticket which i will pay in the morning.
Lucky you. I don't know the law on this in your state, but in most states your car could have been impounded ... I suspect the same holds true in TN as well.
He wrote me a ticket for DWLS and he let me drive away in front of him. He told me to head home and get it taken care of.
He doesn't have to tell you why he got behind you.
On my way back to car, I asked him why did he do a uturn and get behind me? I asked him was I speeding or anything and he say NO. He then acts like he didnt do a uturn and says he made a right hand turn and got behind me and I must have him confused..LIE!
Odd reason, but since he does not need a reason to check your plates and run the license of the registered owner, it is a non-issue.
So then I asked him another question. I ask him what did I do to make him run my license plates. He says youy didnt do nothing. You have a out of state plates and most people with out of state plates is illegal and plates not legit so thats why he ran them. WOW. I just shook my head in disbelief and got back in my car and drove off.
What you "have known" is wrong.
Now from what I have known a officer cant run your plates just because they feel like it.
