Yes, the police can charge you. However, you may have a potential defense to the charge if you can establish that the police officer did not have probable cause to stop you in the first place. More facts need to be known in order to give you much more information. Contact a local criminal defense attorney in order to discuss the specific facts of your case. If you can not afford an attorney, ask the Court to appoint one to represent you at your initial court date.
In the mean time, do not post any additional facts about your case online on public message boards such as this one, and refrain from discussing the specific facts of your case with anyone other than your attorney. Best of Luck!
Yes the police can absolutely charge you, however the stop may be a problem for them. If you beat the stop then anything after that may be suppressed.
