My question involves police conduct in the State of: TN
Now can a police officer run your license plates for no reason at all just because there fishing?
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.
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.
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.
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!
I watched him the whole time.
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.
Now from what I have known a officer cant run your plates just because they feel like it..
Am I correct?
