An attorney found in contempt of court in LA, just like Wesley is, would not be brought to a police station but straight to LA County Jail. Also, contempt of court is already a felony, so the judge would not send the attorney to a police cell as if it were school detention. Once declared, the attorney goes to the jail and is processed.
While handcuffing the suspect in the stairwell, officer Lopez puts the handcuffs on his right wrist and she says "stop resisting, it's over." Immediately after this the shot transitions to her handcuffing the left wrist and you can quickly see the cuffs on the right wrist are not fastened. This is confirmed by watching the scene in slow motion. This reveals the actor was not actually handcuffed, which is uncomfortable.
