The officer had no reason to pull me over and his excuse to the judge was that I had passed a car too fast. I was drinking but was in the legal limit. i went to jail and the case is going to be dropped because the judge was unhappy about how the officer arrested me and had no reason for it.
First, you need a good criminal lawyer to make certain your case gets dismissed. Don't rely upon rumor or hearsay that the judge didn't like how the police officer acted. That's usually not true at all. In fact, its usually the opposite.
If and when the case is dismissed, you will then need a good civil rights attorney to sue the city for false arrest if its warranted.
