Officer was upset when he had to let me go without some kind of ticket. Right before I was about to drive off he asked me about a weapon as he looked in the database and saw I hold a CCW permit. In Michigan when pulled over you have to let the officer know immediately when u have your weapon on your person. My reply was, "officer I don't have a weapon on me" Darn I can't even get him for not disclosing that little piece of info!!!! ARRGGGHHH==Police Officers reaction.
I would of filed a complaint hahaha. I'm pretty sure it has to be illegal to pull someone over for no reason. My has got pulled over in his semi because the officer heard a flat spot on his trailer tire. So he did a full truck inspection and marked the so call flat spot with a marker.

I believe that since you are a commercial vehicle they don't need a reason to pull you over

It would be something interesting to look into. I know cops love to get your permission to do things they would other wise not normally be able to do.

My set up doesn't have decals on it. I'm just a guy towing a trailer with some mowers on it when I was pulled over. The officer stated that I didn't do anything wrong. My thoughts are why are you pulling me over then? Its almost as if he just knew he was going to find something out of the ordinary that he could ticket me for.

And you are the exact person who should be pulled over and heavily fined! You are directly disobeing the laws that we spend absurd amounts of time and resources to follow.
