I got pulled over going home from class around 6 pm. When I saw him I just pulled over because I knew he had his radar on. I was just putting it up on the windshield when I spotted him. When he came up to the car I gave him my id/registration. He noticed my hand was shaking and thought something was up. He asked me if I drank or did drugs and said that my eyes were dilated and red.
I told him I was dehydrated and hadn’t gotten much sleep, I took adderall that morning, and my eyes always get bloodshot after deadlifting. He asked me tons of questions about my family, my major and where I had been/where I was going. He asked me to put all of my windows down halfway so he could check my tint.
He ended up asking me to get out of the car. He kept me outside for about 30 minutes talking to me. He kept saying there was something missing and tried to make friends with me. He was reading me the whole time. It seemed like he was trying to get me incriminate myself. He checked my windows, and they let 5 percent light go through, 15 is the legal minimum. While he was doing this he was shining his flashlight into my car.
He asked me what the book I had in the front seat was about. I then told him he was welcome to search it because I didn’t have anything to hide. He didn’t though. Then he ended up giving me a ticket for the tint and just gave me a warning for speeding.
He ended up giving me a ticket for the tint and a warning for speeding. When he let me go he shook my hand. He was very friendly.
What was he trying to do here?
I feel like I was getting mixed signals the whole time.
