Upon delivering a cube van I worked on I was returning it to the customer when I got to the stop sign I looked to the left saw a vehicle coming so I proceeded to turn right in a hurry as not to pull out in front of him that’s when I seen the cop coming from the right I seen the lights in the side mirrors so I pulled over on the next side road
In my opinion, not with an eyeball cop witness you don't.

Beating? No, not under these facts. Stop signs are for stopping. Whether the prosecutor may exercise his discretion is an entirely different issue.

Well, if you didn't stop and the cop saw this incident him/herself, there's little chance that you'll prevail.
