Is it legal to pull me over just because someone called me in as a drunk driver?

Question Details:

I was called in by a cab driver after having him take me to my car. He said I jumped out of his cab and then he said he followed me and I hit a curb several times - not true. So he called me in for drunk driving. I was then pulled over for drunk driving. I wasn't sited for any traffic infractions and read somewhere that you can't be pulled over based on hearsay. The cop stated he wouldn't have pulled me over if I hadn't been called in. My ticket says DUI 1st Offense. I have no traffic infractions of citations.
