    Make sure "Report Crimes Against Me" is switched on too, while you have described an initial bug, the bounty should be prevented (once the pirate fires on you) but he will remain clean if it isn't.
    My System:
    AMD Athlon 860k, MSI A88X-G45 Gaming MoBo, 16GB DDR3, Asus Strix GTX 960 OC 2GB, Windows 10.

    Interesting, I do have it switched off due to security ships getting in my way and even causing the pirates to do a runner, but it's still a bug that's been around for a while and it's not the first time I've experienced and reported it.

    This JUST happened to me as well.

    I came out of SC at Zeigel Dock and the pirate NPC came in right behind me and started to open fire. When I spun around and hit him, I got flagged with bounty, then the security wiped me out in 3 seconds, and I lost a boat load of credits because of it.

    6mil in cargo runs
    3.5mil insurance
    1mil in failure fines

    Not cool...
