A post of what happened to me today, and I need some help.
Scenario: My buddy Mike and I were riding our motorcycles. We were in the wrong, yes, doing 65-70 in a 55. Just cruising along.
Mike takes off suddenly and I'm estimating about 110-120. I continue my current speed. About ten seconds after that, a trooper BLOWS past me and goes up the hill and around the bend. Never looked at me, honked, pointed, nothing. In fact, the air from his car moved my bike a little, he was hauling.
So, long story short, he never motioned for me to stop so I continued on my route home and never thought anything of it.
I get home and there is a text message from Mike, "Sorry man, he got your tags, too."
Now, being in the military and the fact that my buddy gave him ALL of my information
, the trooper called our command. So, I get to be with Mike at 8:00am in our dress uniform ready to face the man.
That part I don't get. Why are they getting involved when neither of us got a ticket? Mike was doing easily 120 and didn't even get anything. I wasn't even pulled over!
Here is the story that my command got from the Trooper:
I pulled over two bikes, both clocked at 126mph. One stopped [Mike] and one [Me] ran from me.
So, here is my question for those in the Law Enforcement arena:
What can come of this?
1.) The trooper never signaled for me to stop.
2.) Yes, I was speeding, but not 126mph. It was 70. Posted speed was 55.
3.) The trooper never saw me, talked to me, made contact, nothing. It could have not even have been me, you know?
4.) Apparently, he has my plates. Can you get plates from a small motorcycle plate while you are driving 120-130+ passing the said bike?
Just a little confused as to if I should be concerned or not.
Also, I've already admitted to myself and all of you that I was wrong for doing 70 in a 55
, but he did NOT motion for me to stop, or I would have. I've never ran and I never will.
