I live in Texas, and the other night i was at the park until about 2 am in the morning, taking a walk with a friend to blow off some steam. As we were leaving the park a cop stops us in the middle of the road. He tells us that he had came to the park, waited for us, left, came back again and waited for us for about an hour, saying he was going to have our cars towed. He informed me, my friend was in their own vehicle, that the park closes at 11pm. I told him that i didnt know that but i do now, he takes me license and goes back to his car. To my knowledge their is no clear sign saying that the park is closed at a certain time, im sure there is i must just have not have seen it. Anyways, he ends up writing me a ticket and gives me a court date, thats fine and dandy, i sign and tell him to have a nice day.
I take a look at the ticket and read through it just for my enjoyment and noticed that the location he had written down was a completely different park, and a completely different street. Off the top of my head i would have to say that the location was over 3 miles away.
Is this grounds for dismissal? I will admit i was at the park at that late of time, i mean im not gunna lie about that, but i was not at that particular park. I feel that if i plead guilty to the ticket and it goes on reecord that i was at that other park, that if something would of happened at that other park that i could possibly be blamed for the crime, and i dont want that to come back and bite me in the ass.
What should i do?
