I would say they may attempt to charge you pending the circumstances but a civil infraction by definition is not a crime.
I believe they would use it to clarify your legal right to be there. As to get an improper lane usage ticket, and to also be charged
with possession of a deadly weapon during the commission of a crime as some states laws are written, is IMO not going to work
out to well for them...
For the record it played into the other thread in a scenario where the civil infraction showed you had no legal right to be there.
In many states (TN included) the legal right to be somewhere is paramount in self-defense laws.
“A "civil infraction" is not a crime, although it is a charge filed by the state.
The state has to prove that you committed a civil infraction by a "preponderance of the evidence,"
which is to say; that it is more likely than not that you committed the violation.
This is a much lower standard than the "proof beyond a reasonable doubt" standard that applies in civil cases.
The typical civil infraction is decided by a judge or magistrate, without a jury, in what is typically a short proceeding.”
