What are some bogus reasons youve been pulled over for?

Saw this topic under the thread of discussion on motor trend and had to ask;
Just as the title reads, what are some BOGUS, flat out stupid, reasons youve been pulled over before?
Cops claiming you have a tail light out on your car that still had dealer plates on it and new-car smell?
You "looked" like your were going too fast?
Post it up

BEFORE YOU BEGIN TO TYPE: remember forum rules and remember some feel more strongly than others about HID's in stock halogen housings.....

1.) thought i stole the car because i was "too young to have this nice of a car"

2.) because they felt like asking my GF if she was in the car on her own free will.
of course she was kinda shocked getting asked that and kinda sat there for a bit, and in my head i'm thinking " holy shit please just say yes and stop staring at the officer". good thing i didn't piss her off that day or i would have been in jail.

i got pulled over in the town of malvern, where the cops are known to be pricks. he pulled me over for the leds in my projectors. then he asked if i was drinking i said no he asked if i would do a breathalizer so i said sure. then after i passed that he asked to search my car, i had nothing to hide so i said whatever. ever since then i haven't been very fond of cops

I had a cop riding my ass.. I merged into a very short turn lane before it did a tight loop.. I slowed down quickly and the cop almost hit me and went off the road, lol... He got back on the rd and pulled me over and wrote me a ticket for reckless driving due to slowing too quickly... Judge called him an idiot and threw the shit out haha.

Ok so I was on my way back to my house from Summer Camp 2011 (which was awesome!) and I was asleep in back with my gf and my brother was driving and when I woke up, we were in front of the local Road Ranger and a cop was tapping on the back windows with a flashlight. It was like 2:30AM on a major road (but no traffic because it was so late/early haha) so I'm guessing the cop had nothing better to do. My brother asked why he pulled us over and he said "I'm just wondering if you know that you have a loud exhaust?" (I have an FSWERKS race exhaust) and I said yeah I know. We weren't even in a neighborhood or anything. He asked if we were drinking and then my brother pulled out his 2 year AA coin and the cop sent us on our way.

I think the dumbest reason I got pulled over for was when I while rounding a curve crossed the fog line, the cop asked if I had been drinking which I had not been. It was an old Datsun B210 that the steering sucked in. He told me to be careful and let me go on my merry way.

One of my two license plate bulbs were out. The one that was lit was a hyper white led so obviously you could see the plate just fine, and he actually gave me a ten dollar ticket for having ONE bulb out.
