My question involves a driver's license issued by the State of: GA
I was riding my Harley after doing some work on it as a test ride and was stopped within a few hundred yards of my driveway. Might add I live in the country with the nearest neighbor about a mile away. The officer said he stopped because my tag light was out, it was two in the afternoon so how could he tell? I did not have my wallet on me so no license to show him. He ran the number I gave him and it came back valid with no tickets and as a CDL class A with Double/Triple, HAZMAT, Tanker and motorcycle endorsements. He then placed me under arrest for driving without LICENSE ON PERSON and had my bike towed. I had to wait at the station for 6 hours for someone to pick me up and all the while my house and shop were open and my wallet laying on the workbench with nearly $1000 dollars in it. Right now my bike is in impound, laying on the ground since they did not put the kickstand down, and I have been fined $550 for NO LICENSE ON PERSON. My wrecker bill is $350 and the impound fee is $60 per day for 61 days but there is over $2000 damage to the bike. I was not allowed to pick up the bike until the ticket was payed so it's been there until I got a court date. I have not had a ticket in 35 years and then it was for 56 in a 50 MPH zone. What can I do? This is a custom bike worth, before they towed it, over $59K. I am at a loss.
