Regarding the Jim Neidhart situation, a police office from Florida stated the following:
Anvil's reps are talking pure semantics. By legal definition, Jim Neidhart was indeed arrested. He just wasn't "cuffed and stuffed." Here in Florida, a DWLSR (driving while license suspended or revoked) is a first degree misdemeanor. The observing officer has the discretion to arrest on site or issue a notice to appear. Neidhart was at the time given a notice to appear and did not comply.
As evidenced by the booking info issued on his HCSO mugshot and website, a capias (warrant for his arrest) was issued for failure to appear. Rather than be apprehended, Neidhart turned himself in, was booked, photographed, fingerprinted and now forced to secure his appearance with a $750.00 cash bond ($500 for DWLSR and $250 for operating an unregistered vehicle).
By the definition of the Florida legal system, he was arrested.
As we hinted at earlier here on WrestlingINC.com, this is damage control by Anvil's reps. That's apparently the reason for a publicist these days - to send out fabricated statements!
