He wasn't stopped for violating a law, he was stopped expressly to see if he was drunk or not, and the license light was just the excuse.
If the light was OK. it would've been for something else.
We all know that it is impossible, for all practical purposes, to drive a couple miles without doing something that a cop can stop you for if he chooses.
This is part of the big brother system that everyone is guilty of something, and therefore, the cops can stop anyone at any time; probable cause is always there.
This makes it easier to control the masses
And failing that, they can just LIE. I've seen it with my own two eyes, and for EXACTLY the same purpose.
