MY QUESTION IS: CAN THIS OFFICER ALTER A TICKET IN THIS MANNER.??? DOES THIS QUALIFY AS A FATAL ERROR???
I am fighting the ticket and I have filed a complaint against the officer regarding his behaviour and unprofessionalism. But I need to know if he is allowed to make the changes on the same ticket based on his personal outrage at my request.???
It may be more of an issue that he took the ticket from your hand. In my opinion he had technically already served you when he gave you the ticket, so he shouldn't have taken it back. If he really wanted to charge you for the full amount, he should have issued a corrective summons. Not sure if that's really sufficient to have the charge tossed in Court though.
