Got ticket for reckless driving today.

Long story short. I was speeding to work this morning trying to get there on time since I was running late. I get about a block from my job and a county sheriff car churps me. I'm thinking.."Okay, he must have seen me doing about 70 or so. I pull over into a parking lot and turn off my bike. He come up to me and tells me to get off the bike and put my hands behind my back. The cop is apparently angry. He then states he has been chasing me for the last 7 miles and I was evading him. I thinking WTF!! He says he paced me at 110mph. I thinking if I wanted to evade him I could have. :? I respectfully express to him that I can't see behind me when I am riding, and I didn't know he was behind me. He can barely get the cuffs on me because my wrists were to big. He then tells me to take of my jacket, helmet, and gloves, and then he throws me into the back of his car. The radio tells him I have CCW, so he is really jumpy now asking if I have the gun on me. All this time, I am pleading that I was not running from him. He is still blowing me off. Then he checks my record and see that it clean. Checks my driving record and sees that it is clean. He turns around and say he I am lucky, and he is not going to arrest me or take my bike. He then give me a ticket for reckless driving, and let's me go.

My question is, have anyone else, specifically in Michigan got reckelss driving before?

LOL..Yeah, he first tried to cuff me with all of my gear on, then he told me to take everything off. He cuffed me afterwards.

I got 8 tickets all on the same day in Michigan... way back when I was
17... and going off to war... like I gave a shit.

I thought that if I survive, I'll worry about them if I ever got home...

Never went back to Michigan... that was like 36 years ago...

I talked to my lawyer friend, and it's not that bad here in Michigan. He said I should be able to make a deal for paying just a fine and no points. We will see. :wink:

Cops like that are assholes. I stopped for a guy like that once (immediately), he jumps out of his car SCREAMING at me.."GET THE FUCK OFF THE BIKE", "SIT YOUR ASS ON THE CURB", "DON'T FUCKING TALK TO ME". ...short man's syndrome or something, I don't know...

Any twelve people who can't get themselves out of jury duty are not my peers.

What percentage of officers, do you think, are like this??
I've seen/experienced far too many instances as this. They make it hard to look at any policeman with anything but negative feelings. A real shame for decent men, as we have here 8)

UPDATE GUYS!!!

Well, till this day the ticket is still not in the court system. I think the cop was actually cool and either lost the ticket or tossed it. Called the court and they said if they haven't received it after this much time it is most likely not going to show. Fingers crossed :wink:

we once had a friend of a friend over at our house for a gathering of sorts......he was a cop, so he's sitting in our home, drinking our whisky, telling us that he hates bikes, and bikers, will go out of his way to stop them for anything and throw the book at em, it makes his day......needless to say, he scored no browniee points at that party :twisted:
on the other hand we know other cops, who are totally cool, have their own bikes, and we ride with them.....
long story short, cops are humans, some are assholes, some are decent.... :wink:

You should have pissed in his drink. On second thought, he prolly had that taste in his mouth many times.
