Don't tug on Superman's cape.U.S. District Judge Ursula Ungaro issued a warrant for Fittipaldi's arrest Wednesday after her October decision to fine Fittipaldi $100 a day for contempt of court did not motivate the 73-year-old Sao Paulo resident to appear in her Miami courtroom. She ordered police to hold Fittipaldi in custody until he purges himself of contempt in the civil case, which stems from a decade old business deal to finish a partially built 110-foot yacht. Jailing defendants in civil cases is a move judges make rarely.
