Mark Zaid was driving with his family to a Washington Nationals game when an officer working a speed enforcement detail stepped out into the road and motioned for Zaid to pull over. Zaid said he had not been speeding.

Zaid, a Washington, D.C., solo practitioner, put his hands on the wheel. “So where’s the emergency, sir?” the officer asked, according to Zaid. “I said there is no emergency unless you consider the fact we are trying to go to the Nationals game.”
