I was passing though Oakbrook Terrace IL on my motorcycle, I had been in town approximately 10 minutes. I pull out of a gas station, make a legal left turn. Officer #30 John Vinson pulls me over. Uses his loud speaker. He says: "I'm going to give you one chance to get away, guess why I pulled you over?" I said: "I don't know, I just made a left turn" He says: "Don't get smart with me" I said: "I don't know" He said: "Do you just want a few tickets today, or do you want to get arrested?" At this point I stopped speaking, and complied with everything. That way I would not get arrested.
He gives me 4 tickets. 2 about license stickers/insurance (which I later proved I had in traffic court) 1 for driving on 1 wheel on a Moped, and one for Speeding going 20 miles per hour over the speed limit.
I call my lawyer and he says there is not much I can do because of the risk of being convicted or putting my license at jeopardy. [continued below]....
..... My Lawyer from Orland Park who has a trustworthy relationship at the traffic court worked with prosecutors to remove 2 bogus charges.
At court, I get the option of court supervision on both the "ONE WHEEL" charge and the "SPEEDING" charge. The supervisor said this police officer would take the charge to trial. If I take it to trial it is his word against mine, so I decline that and pay $500 for riding my motorcycle through the town of Oakbrook Terrace.
