What is the name of your state? PA
OWe live in a small township with a small township parttime police dept. Well me and my wife have lived here are whole life so thats about 27 years . We dont smoke at are home, so every night for the last year or two we go around the block and have a smoke or two. Well Last night we went for are smoke ride and on the the way home (these rides last about 3 to 4 min) I saw a big lite up pumkin, I wanted my wife to see it so I turned around at the gas staion in middle of are township (were are one and only traffice light is) as a drove by to show my wife this pumkin, wich is across the street from where my gradparents have lived for 50 years, next there is a cop up my butt, so at the first street about 1/8 mile away I make a left the cop turns too still up my ass major. I pull In a devolment to get him off my tail , he goes straight , I turn around as I am turning around he comes back down the road I just turned off well he sees I turned around he steps on the brake and pulls in a drive way, now I am pulling back out on the road , I can go right towards the cop and my house or left and go around the block again, well I went past the cop, at this point I just think he is being a pain, well as I drive buy this cop he pulls out and puts his lights on, so I pull over give him my licence and stuff. I ask him what I am pulled over for he said I was Loitering and prowling at night time.I said what I havent even stop my truck, he says I turn around in the gas staion which made me look suspicious , I said o.k. well I was showing my wife that lighted pumkin back there so you got to be kiddind, then he says no and he could wright me up for night prowling and avoiding him, he sees by my licence I live about 1/8 mile away, and I drove wright pass him so how was I avoiding him? well I said thats slilly and I cant belive I can get a ticket for driving around the block my house is on. so he say yes he can give me a ticket if he saw I am driving around the block 3 or 4 times (wich he is already full of it I went around one time , but I dont care if I go around 100 times) so I said again you cant ticket me for driving around my block he say want bet, well 5 min, later he comes back and says my tickets in the mail I said see ya in court and drove away. This is what our state law says for that crime:
Whoever at night time maliciously loiters or maliciously prowls around a dwelling house or any other place used wholly or in part for living or dwelling purposes, belonging to or occupied by another, is guilty of a misdemeanor of the third degree. is driving down the road malicious/ and as soon as he saw I lived around the coner and I told him what I was doing should it have been droped? And if he though I was couseing a problem why didn't he ask me to get out of the car? We dont smoke at our house becouse my mom hates smoke, do I have to be told I am Loitering and prowling at night ? And why is the ticket being mailed?
