Re: arrested for not signing to officers approval
Well, from an actual officer's persepective here in FL, if he arrested you for not signing the ticket then you should be able to get out of that for sure. I know here in FL we have to just note that the subject wouldn't sign, but there is no law saying you have to sign the ticket. However, and not saying that you were, but if there is something else that he justified, such as obstruction or anything along those lines it will hold up. But if you were being compliant and just chose not to sign, he'll lose that one.
P.S. - a lawyer is just going to cost you more than the actual ticket, just go explain to the judge what happened and as long as your in the 'right', you'll be fine. Everyone always suggests a lawyer but its pointless with something like this - and with you signed, regardless of what its like, you'll be fine and win that one - not signing anyways will only cause you more grief in the long run
