Turns out burnside cops pull people over in Bronston then falsify documentation saying citation was given on south 27 instead of on hwy 90 across the bridge in Bronston..... Anyone dealt with this similar situation.. If so what can I do?

By law, it should be thrown out. But, you never fight a cop and win. Even if the judge rules in your favor, the first time you break wind there's going to be a citation for it. That's just the way it is.

Hate to be the bearer of bad news but they have county wide jurisdiction, can write you a ticket anywhere in pulaski county.

Good point. It's not that way here. We have both a town and county police force. Town only has jurisdiction in town limits. The county has jurisdiction county wide, but there's an agreement not to intervene in town unless asked.

I'd demand to be stopped inside the limits of Burnside - Stand up for your right to be cited only in the city - He'll probably be glad to stop you again , at your convenience -

Actually that isn't true. City police have the authority to arrest/ticket outside the city limits. Kentucky Law KRS 95.019 states this: The chief of police and all members of the police force in cities of the first through fifth classes shall possess all of the common law and statutory powers of constables and sheriffs. They may exercise those powers, including the power of arrest for offenses against the state, anywhere in the county in which the city is located, but shall not be required to police any territory outside of the city limits.

In other words if they see it in the county outside the limits they can do something about it....they aren't required to patrol that area....the County Sheriff's office patrols there but like the city guys if they see something in the city limits they can do something about it.

The cop falsifying the citation troubles me more than the actual ticket. If he has county wide jurisdiction then Why lie about the location the citation was given.. I won't just let a measly burnside city cop get away with lying.

He wrote the citation stating I was going 64 in a 45 on hwy 27 when in fact I was going 64 in a 55 on hwy 90 in Bronston... I didn't read the ticket until I got home. That is the full story... I also have a picture showing the location where I was pulled over at with his blue lights in my rear view mirror... my car was almost to the bass pro shop on 90. This cop was a complete ass

Just curious, why do you have a picture?
If you feel this strongly take it to court.
Take money with you to pay the fine and be ready for a contempt of court charge.

The speed limit changes at the point of the sign and not when you see it. Were you facing the 55mph sign? Because if you were and he clocked you before you got there then clearly you were going too fast in a 45mph zone. Provided that is what the limit was before the sign. Here is what you really need to do. Check and see if in fact he checked that video was taken of the offense. If it was then I would suggest with all your concerns you go to court and ask for the officer to produce the video because that will settle any dispute. Just about all law enforcement have video these days, they come standard. So I would do that because the good ol' boy system can't cover up their own video in a courtroom.
