It sounds like you made a friend with the one white DPS officer. That might help with keeping points off your record with a cop friend.

I doubt dispatch sends many DPS officers to domestic violence calls. They're kind of known for traffic duty

I don't want anything to do with him, points they are going to suspend my license for a minimum of 6 months class C and M then I have the possibility of up to 30 days in jail according to him.

yeah, I'm not denying that what I did was wrong, however arrested? I feel like that's a bit much, and to be charged with reckless driving?, there was really nothing reckless about it honestly, its not like I'm holding it at 12 o'clock on the balance point. He said it was about 1 foot off the ground at 32mph in a 45, I don't think that is "willful or wanton disregard for the safety of persons or property."

but hey they make they make the rules.

doubt it, but you need a lawyer they don't play out there at their court house.

. I thought reckless driving was more of a jailable moving violation. I thought punishment was a an initial trip to jail and a big fine vs license suspension, jail sentence, probation, etc.

Two ways, sent a message to his wheelie popping friends and prevented him from going through the brick wall of a garage while he was in custody.

You don't always go to jail for reckless driving. And it's not 100% certain you will lose your license. Right Webster PD

I'd hate to call it a wheelie, I do the same when I ride either my motorcycle or bicycle and there is a pot hole, or small trench dug in the road from construction, better than your front wheel getting stuck and you flying over the handlebars. I didn't apply any power while the wheel was in the air, I chopped the throttle right away. Why did I do it? can't say, why do people use their cell phones when they're in traffic?

I got pulled over in Webster for the same thing. Officer was really cool about it and just told me to not do it again.

it's going to depend on the individual officer and if he's in a good mood or not.


that does seem a bit extreme to go to jail for a baby wheelie.
