I've heard a couple of stories like this where cops are pulling people over for very minor problems. I have heard by way of the grapevine that in general, people are driving slower to conserve fuel. Because of that, the cops aren't able to write as many traffic tickets for speeding and for accidents caused by speeding and wreckless driving. So they're now looking for any excuse to pull someone over to write a ticket to bring in some money to the city coffers. However, in this case, since you didn't get a ticket, maybe he was just trying to warn you before you got to the cop that WOULD write you a ticket...
Yea, it sucks to get pulled over and hassled a little for something so trivial, but at least you didn't get a ticket and have your insurance rates go up.
