If any person fails or refuses to comply with an order of the director, or to obey any subpoena issued by the director or agents of the division, or to furnish the statistics, data, and information required to be furnished to the division by the provisions of articles 40 to 47 of this title, or refuses to permit an inspection as provided in said articles, or being in attendance refuses to be sworn or examined, or to answer a question, or to produce a book or paper when ordered to do so by the director or any of the deputies, agents, or referees of the division, the director may apply to the district court, upon proof by affidavit of the facts, for an order, returnable in not less than three days nor more than five days, directing such person to show cause before the district court which made the order why such person should not be committed to jail. Upon the return of such order, the district court shall examine under oath such person and give the person an opportunity to be heard. If the court determines that the person has refused without legal excuse in any one of the foregoing matters, it may commit the offender to jail forthwith by warrant, there to remain until the person submits to do the act which said person was required to do or until said person is discharged according to law.
