Legal Question

Asked on: 6/02/13, 10:33 am

A month ago I was stopped by a NH State Trooper who told me I had failed to dim my high beams. I was subsequently arrested for DWI. I was driving the limit and not erratically at all, and don't think I was even using my high beams as I was on a fairly well lit stretch of road. My question is this: The officer didn't even cite me for failure to dim the high beams. If he believed I was guilty of that infraction, shouldn't he have given me a ticket? Since he didn't charge me with this violation, doesn't this eliminate the probable cause he had to stop me in the first place, thus negating any evidence used for the violations I was actually charged with?
