A PA state trooper pulled me over and told me I'm being stopped because when he ran my plate, my license came up as suspended. I have a probationary license, which means I can drive between 6 am and 7 pm, anywhere and for any reason. This was well within that time allotment. Was subsequently arrested for suspicion of DUI. Since then I have become eligible for, and have received, my full license. Never got any mention of my probationary license being suspended when I went to get my license at the DMV. So, either the officer misinterpreted the information on his laptop, or, the information showed (though erroneously) that my license is suspended. I'm thinking that if he misinterpreted the info, then the stop was unlawful; but if he got the wrong info, then his belief is all that matters.
