I had a friend (since deceased) who was a Deputy Sheriff for the county in question, who called the arresting officer to discuss the bullshitness of the charge. The arresting officer refused to shit-can the ticket, but told my friend to tell me to just show up in court and he would recommend a no-point offense.
