    How did they find out?  How would they have known you were texting?  If it were truly a "private" road you wouldn't have been ticketed.

    How did the state get involved? 

    On the citation, it will clearly state where you were. It will name the public highway that you were upon when you committed the offense.  The citation will also clearly state the law or ordinance which you violated. So exactly what does your citation say?

    That road is not YOUR "Privately owned road"

    Look, it is like this.  If you have farm land and you are out in the middle of YOUR FIELD then you can hit your tree(and NOBODY CARES)

     But when the state wrote you a 12 point ticket, then the road is not yours.

    That simple.

    Yes they did.  Thank you for asking.

    You do realize that your privately owned road may still be designated as a public thoroughfare, right?  If it is, traffic laws still apply.

    Not legally possible, and it's privately.

    Sounds like another troll story.

    Check with a lawyer. The state may not have jurisdiction. Legal advice on Y!A is worth every cent you pay for it.
