Q) Did the police have the right to stop me?

A) The State must prove that the police officer had probable cause for the stop. In its most simple explanation, the police must have an explainable and legitimate basis to pull you over.  This can be as simple as a minor motor vehicle violation.  Quite frequently, police officers stop individuals for speeding or swerving only to later find facts that indicate that the individuals had been drinking or using drugs.
