Woman Arrested For Flagging Police Speed Trap

Natalie Plummer was riding her bicycle in Houston, Texas when she noticed police using a speed trap to catch potential speeders. Plummer decided to take matters into her own hands by making a sign and standing on the sidewalk warning oncoming cars of the speed trap ahead. A officer noticed her doing this and arrested her for standing in the street when a sidewalk is present. She says the officer told her he would arrest her for felony obstruction of justice which carries a penalty of 3-5 years in jail. She was arrested for a misdemeanor and only spent 12 hours in jail. She is currently awaiting her day in court. What do you think of her actions and the actions of the officer for that matter? Who do you side with?
