End up getting pulled over this morning and the cop gave me 5 tickets. I did not see him when I got on the highway nor did I see him get off the highway when I did. He said I was doing 80mph in a 55mph and ran a red light when I got off the highway.
This is my own fault and I’ll have to hire a lawyer to fight this because each ticket comes with points. My dashcam was not running because I had to get a new windshield put in a few days ago and didn’t reconnect it. 0B1C176A-91E9-451D-9BD7-FEA82E4490E4.jpeg4FCE48C9-E8C5-4DE6-8868-3A9210D75D29.jpeg

kinda seems like that failure to stop should have only been 1 instead of 4 infractions. Did you piss the guy off?
Same thing I thought. How long did he have to go before OP stopped? That REALLY pisses them off. I drove about a block to get out of traffic one time, and almost got written for eluding!:spazface:

On another note I wish we had any moving violations that were that "cheap" around here!

Not sure, it was a young cop who pulled me over. I was right in front of my apartment complex when he pulled me over. Nobody was behind me then all of a sudden the cop comes around the corner with his lights on and I knew he was coming for me. I just turned my car off, turned on the lights and had my driver license ready. Not many words were exchanged beside license and registrations and why he pulled me over and when he told me he was giving me citations. He didn’t even use his spotlight to shine it through my rear view mirror, which was odd since it was was at 1:30am.

No, there was nobody near me until he pulled me over at my apartment complex. Wish I had my dash camera working to review the whole incident.

From the time I got on the highway and got off the highway about 5 miles. So somewhere in between there. But I know for a fact I did not drive past cop. He had to be behind me the whole time. But I did take my exit at a high rate of speed.

Sorry man. It definitely seems excessive to give 5 tickets.

That's ridiculous. I've driven quite far before and never had an issue. That's one thing I really dislike about dealing with LEO. So many times I've had really good experiences, but the one-off bad experience really leaves an impression.

Wow. In my case he let know he was unhappy, really unhappy. I told him I drove that far for his safety and mine and he REALLY came unglued! You never know what you're gonna get in a traffic stop...

Sounds like he went with the no lube option. He's compensating for something. Attorney should help you out a bit, good luck man.

Uffda. "Discover" his patrol cam when you lawyer up.
I would not wait that long. Use the open records law to request any dashcam and/or bodycam footage now for the incident including x miles before and at least until you've pulled out of sight.. Also ask for his notes about the incident

Good point although might want to discuss with the attorney first to coordinate handling of the case. The attorney may have recommendations for how to pursue it where not following his lead could hurt your case depending on how you go about things procedurally. Best to discuss first.

This guy^.
I believe this is a lawyer up scenerio, unlike my posts in another thread asking how a lawyer pays off for a simple ticket.
This cop is quadruple dipping you to make something stick.

Next time be sure and ask this question: "Did you pull me over to sell me tickets to the police man's ball?" When he replies "We don't have balls anymore!" you will have earned your 5 tickets.

What State is this? County and City if you feel up to it?

I am of the opinion that you should only have two tickets (but I'm not a lawyer). How young was this LEO? If one doesn't stop hence running a red light, then it isn't possible to do any of those other things other then failing to stop/running a red light which are the same thing.

Holy crap, what a bunch of BS. Violations 1, 3, and 4 are basically the same thing. It's like if you're doing 20+ over the PSL (in VA) and the cop gives you a ticket for reckless driving, speeding, and failure to obey a highway sign. Likewise, "driving vehicle in excess of reasonable and prudent speed on highway", does he have any proof of that (radar/lidar)? Sounds like a very subjective claim, especially without any evidence to prove that you were going at said speed. A lawyer is highly recommended for this one.

Also, I believe in MD you can request the officer's dashcam/bodycam footage. I would definitely look into that although probably best to consult with a lawyer first. However, we are talking about PG so I wouldn't be surprised if the footage gets "lost". It's not exactly a PD that's well known for honesty and integrity:rolleyes:.

It sounds like something is going on here that is not right. Definitely get a lawyer..
Those do sound like MD Code sections.
