Massachusetts state trooper gave me a citation for tinted windows he also stated that if i tried taking it to court he’ll hit me with other citations. can an officer do that? can he hit me with other charges or violations that weren’t on the original ticket that was bought to court?

The main goal for your own Benefit is to know 100% if he had his hat on!
If he did your screwed, and you should fully expect more citations in the forthcoming future. If there was no hat on than you'v got nothing to worry about.

Well in fact he could.
But , you'll be summoned to the special court, and judge used by MSP. Only.

Check with a lawyer prior to 1st appeal

MSP is Mass State Police

and oh no hat? Well by department POLICY they MUST wear their hats when acting in official duty- since he wasn't wearing it, the policy has been violated and thus so have his actions! Definitely appeal the citation then, you'd be crazy not to esp because window tint is very easy to get turned over (especially since he didn't use a tint meter!!)

Edit: Make sure you add this to the original post as well:

"My truck has tinted windows that are passed the legal limit and i'm aware of that. my issue is that and my buddy pulled into the play grounds parking lot behind my high school to talk, the parking lot wasn't plowed and my trucks 4wd isn't working at the time so tried turning around and i broke traction so i just throttled it out so i wouldn't have gotten stuck. parked in the parking lot where i knew i could get out (snow was heavier in areas bc of snow drift) and 10 minuets later a state trooper pulls up and starts inspecting my truck. taking a picture of my plate, looking at my exhaust, light bar, sticker and doesn't say anything to me but have me put my windows up 1/4 of the way. Says way to dark and just told me to pay the ticket and pretty much threatened me not to go to court by saying "just pay the citation if you take this to court i will hit you with spinning dounts and tresspassing" kinda stuck here on what i should do. My school resource officer says i should definitely take it to court. i'm taking the tint off and everything i just need opinions on what i should do or if the officer can even say that he'll hit me with other things that what the ticket was originally for. Thanks!"

Secretly the trooper wants to go to court. Being this close to the end of the month I'm sure he want credit for those extra citations because when they make the quota the prize is a toaster.
Hey wait a minute. I don't need another toster. Mrs. 240 will leave me. What about the new 54 in oled,t.v. ive been hearing about. She'd Love that for the game.
Fuck it, if my administration is back to pulling the same bs, I'm not writing anymore v's!

They really should go to a point system for you guys. You could collect points and then redeem them. Kind of like the old S&H Greenstamps program.
