They have to have reasonable suspicion to ruin the dog or they have to have another person running the dog while they continue writing you a traffic ticket
answered on Jun 23, 2021
Not unless there believe you’re a witness to a crime or have reasonable suspicion to believe you have committed a crime.

Just tell them to drop all of the charges or you will sue them.

answered on Jan 14, 2021
Yes but it will take five to six years from the date you were convicted. You could also try to get a pardon which would only take about two years.
