Can an officer "pull me over" for a traffic violation even though I had been out of the car for 10 minutes and was doing an entire separate activity by time that he approached?

Question Details: I was going fishing and out on the main roadway a state trooper had a vehicle pulled over. I pull into the park to fish as planned and had been there for 10 minutes or so, long enough to start fishing. When the trooper pulled up to me 20 ft away from my car and said that he wanted to talk to me because he had observed me driving with what appeared to be illegal tinted windows, which he then demanded that I show him ID and said that he wanted to check the tint on my windows.
