376.05  RELEASE FROM ARREST ON NOTICE TO APPEAR.
   Whenever any person is arrested for any violation of this Water Traffic Code, the arresting officer may serve upon him a citation and notice to appear in court.  The arrested person, in order to secure release and when permitted by the arresting officer, must give his written promise to appear in court, as required by the citation and notice served by the arresting officer.  Upon the arrested person's failure or refusal to sign such written promise, he may be taken into custody of such arresting officer and so remain or be placed in confinement.  The arrestee's watercraft may be taken into a place of impoundment at the expense of the arrestee.
