I know I got lucky, although to be honest, I dealt with the situation (as it happened) the best way possible. The officers were very friendly despite my offense and I was able to get on their good side quick enough. Definitely a lesson well learned though.
I'm sure you're a charming guy
and it certainly helps to be nice to NYPD, but a big reason why they have become kinder and gentler is because the City has gotten sued recently by several tourists who didn't have such nice encounters with the system when they forgot their ID in their hotels. NYC wants/needs y'all to have a nice time and getting thrown in jail for such a minor offense doesn't add to the experience!
In any case, I'm sure there's a way to get the summons cleared without coming back. Good luck tracking it down!
