At least you are not in St. Louis

I don't know what to do, this is awful.
I am a 35 year old man with a good job, wife and kids. I volunteer with about 8 local charities and consider myself a pretty decent person.
Last night at like 6:30 pm, I was about half way through a 10 miler and I had to go to the bathroom (#1). I was nowhere near a bathroom, but on a local paved trail that meanders through forest, neighborhoods, etc.
I was at a very secluded part of the trail, no one anywhere in sight. It was dark. I would say the closest house or street was at least 800 meters away. So I stop, step off the trail and begin to pee into the bushes.
Suddenly, a cop on a bike rounds the corner and literally treats me like I am trying to run from him after robbing a bank. He make me put my hands behind my back, get down on my knees and everything. I thought he was going to cuff me.
I tried to explain that I was just on a run, but he wouldn't listen.
Anyway, I got a fat PI ticket and I have to go to court. Is this something that is going to haunt me? My wife laughed at me, but I think it could end up being serious.
Yes, I finished my run with the ticket in my key pocket.
No, Johnny "Hotpants" Jimmerjammer will get a failure to identify ticket. But I'm guessing they won't be able to find him.

No, I had no ID. I was honest with the cop.

For the record, I was able to have this dropped without even appearing in court. Just thought I should update. It took me like 3 hours to find this thread since I couldn't remember the words I had used.
My LRC message board search was a little scandalous: "sexual, indecency, pee, peeing, bathroom, cop, bike, trail"
