I went in to work at 9 and about 10 mins later received a call asking if i jumped out of my car and ran from a police officer trying to pull me over, I replied no she then asked if I drove a certain car I said yes. I was in parking lot at work. 3 officers came in my job and demanded I speak to them in front of patients. I asked them what was going on 1 office said I tried to pull you over and you got out of your car and ran. I replied I did not see a cop trying to pull me over and I was almost late for work so I hurried in but I wasnt running and seen no cop. He then asked for my ID left and came back with a ticket, is that legal? I never saw a police car or one trying to pull me over. i pulled into my job which has only one way in and one way out.
Yes if he saw you speeding or clocked you and got you identification from your license tags or some other way.
I've seen this happen here in NC before- but not often, thankfully. Please get an attorney to assist you . I've met a number of great defense attorneys in Cabarrus County.who can help you sort this out and protect your rights- and your license privileges.
I wish you the best.
If he claims that he saw you speeding and can identify you as the driver, then he can give you a citation without pulling you over. Best of luck!
