First Im sorry to hear about this problem.
Unfortunately there is nothing illegal about what the officer did because it was within the officer right to issue a ticket to your son if he notes the speeding. Further most people are suprised to find out that law enforcement can lie to people so long as it is not a lie that violates certain rights such as that to remain silent, offer of an attorney or possibility of information being used against you at trial and even these rights only apply when being arrested.

SHOULD MY SON GO OUT AND GET THE TICKET OR GET HIS CAR TOWED. HE SAID HE WASNT SPEEDING.
Expert:  Daniel Solutions replied 6 years ago.
The officer may tow the vehicle and will definately issue a ticket regardless if he returns but if he returns that vehicle would most likely not be towed as it wouldnt be need as evidence or a claim of evidence.
Your son's argument of not speed is something that must be addressed in court. He will not win an argument with the officer and that will only escalate matters as that is what court are used to make determinations. I would suggest he retain an attorney to represent him on the speeding ticket if he says he wasnt speeding.
