My apology, I had to re-read the article. My mistake, it does state in the article that she did pay the ticket. Well, that is her story anyway. If she did pay the ticket, then there should be no warrant. If what this woman is saying is true, then she has brought suit against the wrong people. She should be suing the Youngstown Municipal Court for not recalling the warrant. Everything else that was done to her is what is done to every other person that is arrested.

First of all, I hope everyone realizes that there are two different police departments in Poland. There is Poland Township and there is Poland Village. This Vindy article is wrong, the officer that is mentioned actually works for the Poland Village Police Department. For PenguinBird, the "speed trap" you mentioned is in Poland Village, the township, and the township residents have nothing to do with that. Although this article clearly misprints where this officer works, it clearly states that the woman did not fully pay the ticket. Therefore, a warrant would be issued, and she should be arrested. The only thing the officer has to worry about is if he legally stopped the woman, and if he had the warrant confirmed prior to arresting her.
