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?
