For “Class C Misdemeanor” offenses the initial punishment assessed is “fine only” and does not include jail time. Generally a fine is assessed by a Judge or you may be given the option of Driving Safety Course or Deferred Disposition when you make arrangements for your citation. However, when you sign the citation issued by the Police officer, you promise to appear in court. You may be arrested if you do not voluntarily come to court as you have promised. In addition, YOU MAY BE ARRESTED if you do not pay the fine assessed by the Court, which you promised to pay.
