See, BACHI. If he was following traffic rules, he wouldn't have been stopped. It even happens when people driving cars, get stopped for traffic violation and the officer finds outstanding warrants, drugs, illegal weapons, etc.

I got stopped running a red light under the Nimitz viaduct. My brakes were too loose and I couldn't stop in time. A sheriff stopped me.
