Not in my area of California ...
A ticket is when you violate a [B]parking or driving law
[/B]that is considered minor in the eyes of the law. An arrest
is when you break the law and is punishable by probation or
a ticket is just that - a citation to court on a particular date. It could be a misdemeanor (petty theft/ dui/ battery) or an infraction (speeding, littering, jaywalking). The person was simply not arrested & booked at that time.
And, I have seen people arrested on infractions (had no ID).
