Police just followed me home

I just drove around the block with my son so he could listen to a noise my car was making. While going around the block a cop was headed in our direction. As soon as he passed us he did a u turn and got right up on me with his bright lights on. He proceeded to follow me home. When I pulled in my drive way he slowed down to almost a complete stop and then drove off very slow. I was not speeding or doing anything wrong....but really curious as to why he did that. Now Im a nervous wreck and sick to my stomach...

He was probably running your plate.

All that would do is annoy me.

Either just being an asshole, or seeing if you would panic while he ran your plates. There's no telling. Even though those police work night shift they seem to forget other people function at night instead of during day time.
Don't stress. You were doing nothing wrong. However of you do get pulled over in a situation like that you are within your rights to only barely crack your window, keep the doors locked and request a second patrol car if he asks you to exit your vehicle.

There may have been another incident in Thea and they were looking at all people in the area they came across that were out and about. He/she was probably trying to see if you matched a description. Call. The police departments non-emergency number and ask if it makes you feel better.

Was your son behaving in the car? In a proper car seat? Sounds a bit strange.

I dont think my son would ride in a carseat or fit in one LOL...he is 19 years old. Nothing was going on...we didnt even have the radio on because he was listening for a noise the engine was making.

Is it late where you're at?

He probably followed you to make sure you weren't doing anything sketchy or suspicious. (Doing drugs, looking for houses to break into etc)

Don't let it bother you. It's over now.
