A: Potentially. Tickets, like all other charges, are supposed to have enough information to advise the person of what they are being charged with. Your best bet is going to be to get with an experienced criminal defense lawyer to discuss the facts and circumstances of the case, particularly the stop, and develop a plan of action to suppress the evidence or otherwise seek a dismissal of the case.
