Why not just pay the traffic citations? Then you have no issues. Call a lawyer this morning. Settle your stuff.

Well you have two traffic warrants so you have to go to court for that but everything else the cop can't do…

The "thin blue line" protecting (?) with a strong arm. Settle your citations judiciously. Tell the "Blue Knight" go get "enlightened" with a twist. Better days are ahead of you. Safe Journey.

How can that be black mail? If he didn't have the tickets in the first place nothing would happen!

He is coerceing her into helping him when She doesn't want to. Is that not blackmail. I'm no cop but that's what it sounds like to me.

He is going to either pay the ticket willingly, or have the cop arrest him for it. As a cop for 35 years, blackmail is coercing money out of a person who has committed an illegal, or immoral act, that if known to the public, would discredit that individual, Not getting a ticket paid. If there was no ticket in the first place and the cop said tell me about do and so or ill take you to jail for not telling me! Then that would be extortion.

You must have inside info. I see nowhere where he saids he will pay for the fines if the person dobs in other people. Overlooking a fine doesn't mean paying it.

Would not be an issue if you didn't have the tickets. Just take care of the tickets and there will be no problem.
