Go to court and move to have the arrest dismissed.
The guy's a jerk. He messed up and now he doesn't know how to handle it. Go Monday and move for dismissal. He can't MAKE YOU RETURN THE TICKET! That's insane. You could call the court to ask if it's on the calendar and if not ask what they want you to do. Depending on what they say...you can come back here and discuss. Just ask for me.
Go to court. The clerk isn't going to give you the straight story. You must fo in case he files the paperwork. Don't go to the police station. That's bogus. Try to dismiss it. If he follows up with a new ticket, use the prior dismissal to seek a dismissal of the second.
Leaving for a while. Please accept my answers? thanks.
