A North Texas man is trying to clear his name after he was arrested and cited for allegedly violating a city ordinance for holding a homemade sign warning drivers about speed traps.
Ron Martin, 33, was arrested last October after an officer saw him standing in the median on the Eldorado Parkway in Frisco holding a sign that read “Police ahead,” letting drivers know an officer was waiting at the opposite side of a nearby bridge, MyFoxDFW.com reported.
In the police report, Officer Thomas Mrozinski said he was familiar with Martin and had seen him two other times that month holding the sign in the median. He accused him of trying to interfere with the department’s speed enforcement operations, according to the report.
