This story is at best only moderately informative. It misrepresents the contents of the video in at least one key respect (the officer does not ask the man to get out of the car before he refuses to sign the ticket). It doesn't say anything about what a Utah traffic ticket looks like (does it clearly show the violation? does the signature area make clear that it is not an admission of guilt?). The author says that a warning was legally required, but no code is cited and Utah 76-2-404(2) only applies to deadly force.
