Am I under Arrest?

Had a horrible day. All that wheeleing and speeding caught up with me. Got caught doing a nice wheelie. I never saw where he was. He just got on my ass a few miles down the rode.

I immediatly pulled over parked and got cuffed. He ran everything to find I had a suspended licence. That was news to me. Found out later is was do to a 50 dollar D.M.V fine about a plate I brang back late.

So the bike gets towed to my sisters house (very close by) and I get a driving under suspended licence added to the reckless op. The cop was very professional and I was very relaxed even though I have never been arrested.

Instead of going to jail till monday to get bailed out, he lets me get a ride and go home. We part ways and I go for a ride with the camel unfiltered smoking tow truck guy. :bandit

Since its my first arrest I will plea a article 894 to get the arrest off my record and pay up to the fines for my wrong doing. Plus my brother is a cop and he will accompany me to my hearing.
I am going to stay off my bike till after I go to court so I won't have the judge thinking I didn't learn my lesson.

Crappy day but could have been worse. I should come out of this only a few hundred down. Instead of my bike down sliding on pavement. Today was just my day to get popped and I will take it in stride.

I think it'll probably be a little more than a few hundred. :2bitchsla You had to learn the hard way, hope everything works out for you!

Maybe so. The judge knows my brother very well so hopefully I will pay a fine. Take driving school test/school again and be on my way.

I havent had a runin with the law in a long time so I was getting pretty cocky on my bike and the Lightning. I wish it didnt happen this way but I did learn my lesson.
She doesn't play well with others. Also if parked around other bikes no matter where she is put, you always come back to find it in front. :lol

Went to dmv and got my suspension lifted. Found some new stuff out.

Paid $102 dollars for late plate on r6. Paid $102 to lift suspension. $52 for a month that i missed on my Lightnings insurance.

Total = $256 (ouch)

Also found this out. I got a ticket when i was coming back from tubing march 29 ,2004 in hammond. 58/35.

Paid the ticket on 4/03/05. Ticket over end of story. Not quite.

It seems that they did not cash it till OCTOBER 11th!!!!

Needless to say, I had a warrant out and the judge added 144.00 dollar CONTEMPT of COURT FEE.

My licence was suspended because i had not yet received a receipt of payment that you HAVE to bring back to the dmv to get taken off your record.

I got the receipt faxed to me yesterday and showed them today.

When this is all over I WILL get my 144.00 dollars back from that bitch.

Now I will have to go back to DMV tomorrow to get a new licence, retake my test (written and driving i believe.) Get another MC Endorsement. Test and driving. GREAT!

Then on my own accord I will take a defensive driving class to before I go to court to show the judge I am responsible and have learned my lesson. Which I have.

Hopefully this will save someone the trouble of going through what I am going through now.

If you have a ticket and pay for it. CHECK UP on it until everything is settled. Then check again! You can't rely on people doing their jobs. Cause some won't.

Thanks man. I am actually in a good mood right now. I mean after sitting at my house for 3 days and not leaving because of the susp. I am relieved that tomorrow I can drive again. I had too walk to get cigarettes and food. I felt like such a loser. I deserved it though. Sucks.
