fiver5: taurusowner: Atomic Spunk: arresting the violater is a reasonable step to take,Maybe. Depending on what level of crime their actions are consistent with and whether their state law allows arrest for that crime. For instance, in Michigan, there are 3 levels of crimes. Civil Infractions, Misdemeanors, and Felonies. An officer may only arrest for Misdemeanors and Felonies. I would think this is likely true in other states too. If what this lady did was only a Civil Infraction (as possibly indicated by her being ticketed) the arrest may not be lawful.Yes, the narrow vision of the world you have formed by living in Michigan best explains the laws and procedures in the rest of the country. Especially California.
