One incident does not necessarily make for harassment, especially when there appears to have been a basis for the stop because they wrote you a ticket.

Did they find anything in the truck? What were you charged with? What happened with that case? With more information from you, can reply with a a less general answer.

Actually, I didn't judge you at all. I asked you for more information so that I could supply you with a better answer. But the fact is that IF there was a lawful purpose for the stop and if you don't win the present case against you, you'll have a hard time making a harassment claim stick without more evidence than what you bothered to give me.
