I got Pulled over for alleged offenses witnessed by an off duty Officer. I merged onto a highway. I waved a car to go past me (in the middle lane, off duty officers car). When I got behind this car (the off duty officer's car) he slowed his speed down about 5 miles and hour, I was close but not tailgating. The driver (the off duty Officer) started shined a strobe light back at me so I passed him on the open left lane. When I got back in the middle lane I was now in front of that car and he started tailgating me to get my license plate I guess. The alleged Offenses occurred outside his departments jurisdiction and the even said when they had me pulled over that they were outside their jurisdiction. I was told the off duty Officer called his fellow Officers because of suspicion of impaired driver. No one gave me a breath-a-lizer test or a field sobriety test. The Off-duty Officer came to the window and yelled at myself and My girlfriend while I was getting my insurance and license out to the "responding" Officer. Sorry that was so long but can this be done?
