A: Thanks for your question. I will give you a site for a video you should watch. Do not speak with the authorities yourself, ever!
They must prove they saw you leaving in a vehicle or otherwise, prove they asked you to stop, prove you heard the request and refused; and you knew they were law enforcement, they have nothing. So they must prove you knew they were police, they asked you to stop, you knew they wanted you to stop and you used a motor vehicle to evade them. From what you describe I do not believe they have any of those elements. Do you?
