MEMPHIS, Tenn. (FOX13) - - It's a case of no matter how busy you get, there are certain priorities that have to be taken care of.

In the case of the busy Shelby County Democratic Party Chairman Bryan Carson, his failure to pay an old traffic ticket came back to cost him some money more than a little embarrassment.

Carson was arrested Wednesday during a traffic stop on a warrant for not paying a fine.

That turned out to be from a failure to pay ticket he received in October 2013 that had been sitting on the books.

Carson posted the arrest on his Facebook page, while he was handcuffed.

The post insinuated his arrest might have been politically motivated.

However, Judge Potter in emphatic but hushed tones in court told Carson that his accusation was baseless.

“Mr. Carson and Judge Potter had a discussion about how the ticket was originated. How the warrant was initiated. The judge wanted to explain certain facts to Mr. Carson which he did. It ended with a handshake and an apology and it's all over,” says Carson’s attorney Robert Spence.

In the end, Carson was fined about $187 with court costs.
