Ohio weigh station employees are not officers I was overweight and detained for 1hr 10mins until trooper showed up to give ticket is this legal?

Ohio weigh stations are manned by civilian employees not law enforcement officers. I Entered/stopped on scales and I was overweight and I was told to pull in.
Employee took my licenses/registration/insurance and I was told to wait for a state trooper to arrive to write me a citation and it took the trooper 1hr 10mins to arrive.
Is this legal. I feel my civil rights have been violated due to being detained for an unreasonable amount of time by a non law enforcement officer.
