look at it from the courts perspective: its gonna cost more in paying everyone to be there in court than the ticket is worth. on top of that, it is their responsibility to prove that you are guilty. its a cops job to write tickets, even if nothing is going on. do you really think they are gonna keep someone out in the field if they never write anybody up? looks bad on the cops part if he's not turning stuff in. even if its legit or not. if a bunch of people are calling in, the police need to do something, anything, to make it look like they are doing their job. you were just in the wrong place at the wrong time and ended up being the scapegoat to make the force look good in front of passing cars.
i've been in situations where the cops had no proof of me doing any wrong. one situation my buddies were doing wheelies and ran from the cops, while my and my friend, who was on a cruiser, "took one for the team" as the cop put it, and were written up for speeding. it was thrown out.
