What is the name of your state? Maryland
Hey guys, I just had a quick question about the negligent driving ticket I received earlier today. So I was riding my bike with my buddy in the neighborhood and an off duty cop is talking to my friend while I am off riding. As I come back to meet my buddy - as the idiot I am, I am riding laying on the bike with my legs straight back in the air (the superman) only going about 15mph. The cop pulls out his badge tells me to park my bike. He then proceeds to call 2 on duty officers to come to the area. The 2 on duty cops write us up and they even tell me that the off duty cop is going to be the one in courty to testify because they can't due to not being at the scene. My question is can an off duty officer ticket us? If the answer is no - hence the reason why the on duty officers ticketed us, do I have a case stating that the off duty officer was NOT the one who wrote me up? The name on the ticket for the officer and the officer who will show up on court will not match. Does that matter? Thanks for all the help!
