Wow never would of thought this would happen to me. It all started around 10:30 AM today. My 2005 M6 and I were on I-26 in the Charleston area. All was completely normal traffic, flow, even the weather just reminded me as the normal day type.

Next thing i know i look back in my rear view and see a new model Grey Mustang GT with black racing stripes. Haha he pulls right behind me and starts tailgateing me, I CAN NOT STAND THAT AT ALL. :willy: He then proceeds to pull a flyby on me, about crashed into a innocent Toyota Prius in the process. :lol: I noticed that all of his windows were all equipped with illegal tint no where near 27%. I decided just to play around with this stang because i did not hear a whine or a blowoff so i figured i was safe. I guess he was staring at me because we just decided to GO i pulled all the way through 5th. Got up to about 105 then let off. I was about 9-10 car lengths in front of him, he came back up to my left I gave him the thumbs up.

Gave myself a smile just another kill i thought to myself. The GT then pulled behind me i was just cruising. I looked down then looked back up the GT had about 8 different strobe lights and siren just flashing me down. :confused I could not believe it my heart sunk to the bottom of my chest i was just BAITED!!! I pulled over he got out and told me to get out of the car. I got out just beating myself up mentally. He explained what happened in his mind, i just agreed on what he said the entire time. Complying with whatever Officer Johnson said. He joked "I know what this vehicle is capable of, much more than My Mustang". I thought to myself i know that was true.

PIG Johnson was nice i guess the whole time. He told me he could of impounded the goat for a month and suspend my license for three months for reckless driving. Instead he benefited me with a 850 DOLLAR 8 POINT ticket :lol: wow still could not believe what happened. I drove off and struggled through the whole work day. I called my friend around 2:00 PM and told him the story, he says when i go to court I can call entrapment since i was baited. Does anyone know if that is a possibility, please help me save almost a grand and reduce my ticket thank you. P.S. ever heard of a GT undercover??? Neither have I until today

Yes, I have seen them. They use the prior bodystyle here as well as the new retro bodystyle. I have seen them undercover and also fully marked. I trust NOTHING with dark tinted windows, and down here in Alabama, you can practically have legal limo tint, so if you want to go and got black glass, I don't give you a second thought.

Hell, I got pulled over earlier this year by an undercover Ford Expedition state trooper. He saw me racing a mustang that had been tailgating me just like he did you and was the only reason he let me go. He told me he was going over 100 mph and couldn't keep up, he never fired up the radar detector, or my fuzz buster never went off anyways, I think he was just pacing us and looking at his speedo. He saw the stang f#cking with me, the stang dropped back, then he got in between us.

He told me a ticket like that would be about 1,000 bucks and would have to go to mandatory driving school. He then said to not let a ticket like that ruin my weekend (it was a Saturday afternoon). Then he drove away. Lucky as sh#t, I was, on that day. Sorry you couldn't have been as lucky.

I run Mount Pleasant to Summerville and back every work day. I have seen that same Mustang pull 3 people. A late model silver Camaro, A black late model Trans Am, and a Honda Prelude. Judging by the types of cars he's pulled, he must be baiting. I often see him hiding under the highway 78 bridge (near exit 205)

son...don't ever, ever play with any dark tint window sports car in the charleston area unless you know the person. i've seen an srt-8 sitting off of ashley phosphate several times clocking people which i feel like his clocking had to be very inaccurate. in my daily commute from north chuck to jedburg and back i don't usually come across many po-po but i've seen nearly every undercover car there is in the north chuck arsenal. i've blazed down 26 many times at over 100 mph with not much trouble but seriously if you're not running a doughnut detector or you can't read the traffic, be very very careful. i've seen the common traffic flow at 80 in the 65 and pass cops as well without a problem.

Wow that sucks, Ive only seen the new charger's as undercover cars. Then again I see S2000's with 3-5 large antena's on them. They think they can fool people so easy. Goodluck in your case and thanks for letting us know to watch out for these .

Its been said before, and I feel like it needs to be said again, this really isn't a good method of policing. When this undercover gives some creep a reason to race and he runs it up to 150 and kills himself and others, what did that cop solve?

Good luck with your ticket.

Man i bet he thinks he is so sneaky sitting under that bridge. Wow i mean street racing is not even a problem in South Carolina not at all. He made it sound like street racing was a huge epidemic here and that he was doing innocent drivers a favor, when in actuality he almost plowed into that Prius. I mean bait drug dealers, rapist, even prostitutes just not regular daily drivers that have a "fast" status car. My case is next Tuesday ill fill you in.
Thanks Guys

Wonder what the race baitin cop would have said if you stabbed the brakes when he was up yer a$$ at legal speeds and he rear ended you. I don't see any way out of that situation unless he chooses to lie.

Then you could ham it up. Grab yer neck. Start crying like that kid on American Idol (Danny Noriega). Scream for an ambulance. Get a lawyer involved. Call the press. Enjoy the entertainment.

Yea, I have to agree. That is BS!!!! I don't know how they get off going out on the highway and baitin' guys to race. I think there may be a new supreme court decision in the future: BMWKilla17 V.S. [email protected]# H$%& southern smokies!!!! Good luck, I would find a good lawyer for that one. [email protected]#$ aint right!!! Like somebody else noted, yea racing on heavy traveled highways needs policing, but there are other crimes that should get more attention than baitin' someone to race!!! Unbelievable!!

You can plead entrapment since what he did was illegal.
You could possibly get it knocked down to a careless driving ticket - friend had a similar run-in with a "charger." Since the cop was tailgating you, speeding past you, and provoking you to race you should get off.

+1.

Hire a lawyer. Claim you were scared because of HIS reckless driving AND having ILLEGAL equipment you had no idea he was a LEO and the perp might have been pointing a gun at you through the dark glass. You were going to call the police when he turned on his lights.

What an A-hole.

improve your braking and not your acceleration, this makes for good moves on dumb drivers and cops that like to tailgate. reason for smashing the brakes so hard and so fast, you thought you saw a bunny rabbit or one of those overgrown whitetail dogs. never had any baiting in the chuck yet. also i've never been pulled by an unmarked car and if one attempts to the first thing i'm doing is dialing up the popo in order to justify my 100+ mph speeds to evade the unmarked blue light car. if you remember about a month ago in goose creek a guy was busted for rolling around in a crown vic with operational blue lights and such. just something to take in mind next time you want to just pull over for someone who doesn't have the decency to have some identification on their car to clearly mark they are an officer of the law!

You may be able to go and plead no contest, but, you want to make a citizen's arrest on the cop for reckless driving, then say you were just trying to get out of the way of this reckless driver who was all over the road trying to run you down. :rolleyes: You never know, he may have other complaints against him that could work in your favor, and if he doesn`t, your complaint may help the next guy out.



*edit*
With his way too dark tinted windows, and the way he was driving (dangerously cutting other people off etc.), you could say when he pulled along side of you, you didn`t know if he was full of road rage and had a gun pointed at you or not, with the extreme reckless way in which he was driving and the way he singled you out on the road, you weren`t going to stick around to find out!
