I was pulled over for allegedly speeding earlier today. I told the officer I wasn't going to sign the ticket. He told me to step out of my car, that I was going to jail if I didn't sign. After he threatened me, I signed the ticket and shortly after that, he started yelling at me. I suspect he was trying to get me to yell back at him so he could arrest me.
His manner was abusive and completely out of line and I am considering filing a complaint with the police department about this officer.
First - by law, do you have to sign a speeding ticket in Missouri?
Second - will I cause myself more grief by filing a complaint?
