Hwy 76, Main St., up the hill coming from the east into town

My wife was pulled over for supposedly doing 65 in the 45 leading into town, which is impossible for 2 reasons. Other vehicles on the road, and my wife drives like a grandma. It’s one lane each way. Once the officer pulled her over, he walked up and immediately tried to accuse her of texting & driving as well. He would go back and forth between his car and hers, each time coming back trying to harass her into admitting to the texting & driving. 20 minutes + for the stop. It’s all on his body cam.

We appear in court. Our turn to speak with the judge comes. You don’t stand in front of everyone else. You meet with him semi privately at the front. I tell him that we dispute the cell phone charge, so he immediately scratches that out. I tell him that there’s no way she was doing 65 on that road, so he asks me what we wanna do? So I tell him we want that violation dropped too. He does that…but…the fine still applies because he changed it to a violation of a city ordinance. No report on your license. Obviously just a cash grab. They’re just generating revenue.
