If an officer clocks your speed and pulls you over, how many miles does he have to stop you?

Question Details: Example, if a cop pulls you over for something you did 10 miles before the ticket. If an officer is behind you by a mile and catches up to you by speeding, without his lights or sirens on, does that mean he was speeding because he wasn't enforcing the law at that point? So he would be breaking the law to enforce the law. Would I be able to fight this ticket?
