My question involves a traffic ticket from the state of: Pennsylvania.
2 days ago I was pulled over for have tint that was too dark in the back and having a broken passenger door side mirror(note the officers were parked on the side of the road facing the same direction as I was traveling so they would not be able to determine if my mirror was missing). The police officer followed me for a quarter mile and proceeded to light me up when I turn into my mothers trailer park. As he approached my door he asked for license and registration I asked him why he pulled me over and he then explained why. After I passed him my license I told the office that my registration was in the trunk with my cars manual. He said he would have me get it for him later. At that moment he asked for my passengers license as well and he proved him with a United States of America passport. The officer took our identification and proceeded to run our info in his car.
After about 10 mins he asked my passenger for another form of government ID and asked me to step out of the car and follow him to his car. At this moment he began to search me and placed me in handcuffs. I asked him why I was being arrested and he said I was being detained. I then said that I haven't been read my rights and that I want a lawyer he then said me too. At this point I'm placed in the back of a police car and my passenger is placed in another. The officer who placed me in handcuffs asked if I had anything illegal in the car and I said no. He said last chance and I explained to him that I have a medical marijuana card in California and I'm not sure if anything was there. He closed the door on me and searched my car for 20 mins.
At this time me and my passenger were taken to the police station for possession of less than a gram of marijuana. We were then stripped searched and held in handcuffs for two hours. Upon being released we were given no paperwork what's so ever. My question is do I have a valid complaint against the county?
All of this was excessive and I'm not sure they had a valid reason to pull me over in the first place. I was traveling the speed limit, I did not smoke and I made a complete stop.
