I honestly doubt this was a revenue raising endeavor, as paying the officer to write the report, appear in court, handle the paper, pay the judge, clerks, etc to process everything involved with this one ticket would probably be a money-losing endeavor. The most likely case was that the officer legitimately thought the OP broke the law, and the officer was mistaken.
