Canadian speeding in the usa

I am wondering what would happen if I got a speeding ticket in the states?Do I have to pay on the spot ? Will they throw me in jail if Im going really fast?Will they confiscate my radar detector?
Last year I rode from Vancouver b.c. to San Fran down 101 and back up I-5 on my old 87 zx1000 and hauled ass all the way with no problems using an old bel 945 radar(think it saved me once or twice).Now I have a 2001 zx-12 that likes to go much faster and a escort 9500i with h.a.r.d. system. Do cops use laser on the highway or just k,ka band? Do planes and hellocopters use x band ( on the I-5 my bel 945 would go off on x band in the middle of nowhere?)

Many states now have a law that if u are 20mph over the posted limit,
they have the option of taking you to jail.

But it depends where u speed. We run south in Arizona here pretty much
all the time, 160-180mph with no problems. But we're near the border, and
believe it or not, they don't patrol near the border at all... go figure.
