A vehicle stopped by the police is a detention governed by the 4th Amendment. Detaining motorists, i.e., stopping a person by the police
activating their red lights/siren, is a detention even if its only for
a brief time under the 4th Amendment. Please consult a criminal defense lawyer to determine whether
your stop was unreasonable/unlawful under the 4th Amendment. (See
Berkemer v. McCarty, 468 U.S. 420 for more information).
