Can an Officer pull me over for no reason in Michigan?
No. The stop must be justified by probable cause or a reasonable suspicion that criminal activity was afoot. Usually, the officer will base the stop on a violation of the traffic code, such as speeding or weaving in your lane. They can also stop you for not wearing a seat belt or for having illegally tinted windows.
