When any person has been arrested and brought to trial for the alleged violation of any provisions of this code or any other ordinance of the city, and it appears to the city judge that the prosecutor or complaining witness has made complaint maliciously and without probable cause, judgment shall be rendered against the prosecutor or complaining witness for costs; and the court may issue execution to recover the same, as judgment for debt. Whenever the city judge has reason to believe that any complainant is actuated by malice in making complaint, the judge, before issuing process, may require the complainant to deposit a sum sufficient to secure the probable costs. (Ord. A-206, 2-20-1973)
