  • Can she do this?

    Well long story short..I got pulled over and received a ticket for reckless driving. I was racing my brother on an empty road late at night. The female officer pulled me over I (and at the time she was the only one there) My brother turned down the road but didn't want to just ditch me, so about 10secs after I stopped 2 more units rolled up another behind me and the other one escorted my brother back to were I was stopped. After my brother pulled in front of me there were 6 units there (they said they thought we were gonna run, I'm not that dumb.) But the female officer wrote us both a reckless driving ticket even though she just pulled me, a different officer stopped my brother. I don't understand how she could write both when she only stopped one of us. And I've gone to court and got it all sorted out. And BTW 5 of the 6 officers were males and they were making jokes about how I beat him (I'm in a Stock F150 5.4l V8 and he is in a Stock 94 Camaro V6.) They were laughing that he lost and was saying that we were all kids once and they would've let me offf with a strict warning, since there was no one on the roads, it was late. But again how can she write 2 tickets if she only stopped one of us? Thanks and sorry about this being so long.

      Because you both did it in front of her.

      Just remember you can't outrun the radio...

      You're lucky to just end up with a ticket...just think if she had to pay your parents a visit late at night to tell them.....you both crashed and didn't survive.

        Not only would I have cited both of you, I would have impounded your cars and slapped a 30 day hold on them.

            You sound rather dumb. She probably should have arrested both of you rather than cited you.

                  The officer witnessed both of you driving recklessly. Not sure if any other officer witnessed your reckless act, however she did. Since she was the officer witnessing your stupidity, she writes the citations as it was her stop. Other officers assisted in detaining two criminal suspects (you and your brother in case you didn't figure that out). Considering that you were both acting so incredibly responsible that fine evening, the numerous officers were needed to ensure you didn't further jeopardize the safety of members of the community.

                  Pay your fine and thank your lucky stars that all you received was a citation. I've seen many cases where both drivers didn't end up as lucky.

                  Getting shot hurts! Don't under estimate the power of live ammo. A .22LR can kill you! I personally feel that it's best to avoid being shot by any caliber. Your vest may stop the bullet, but you'll still get a nice bruise or other injury to remember the experience.

                    Of course she can. As others said you're lucky to just get a cite.

                        She witnessed it. I can have another officer/deputy write a citation for me and put my name on it. Their name goes on it also but they are issuing it in my name because of what I witnessed.

                          To expand on what the others posted here, the other officers could have written the ticket too. Police officers are allowed to act on probable cause developed by other officers. In Tennessee you would have both been charged with drag racing. More points on the license.
