Newspapers and media under First Amendment law, can print all names and ages if they choose, although most develop policies related to the protection of victimized minors.
The names of individuals who have yet to be served warrants by authorities, could be on the public information list.
Citations (tickets) such as, no proof of insurance/registration/operator's are often dropped or dismissed
upon proof. Others are assessed fines and/or court cost
