Officer told me wrong reason for stopping and wrote different information on the ticket

Asked over 1 year ago - Whitehall, PA

The officer told me i turned without a green arrow which is not a crime, then wrote on the ticket that i ran a red light. This is not true because I began my turn as the light was turning yellow. I believe that if the turn is started while the light is green that it is still legal? Also I have reason to believe he was too far away to see my complete turn, is there any way I can argue my way out?
