The holidays put everyone in a more giving mood, but do not expect everyone to be super nice. You cannot get away with everything! Take the police for example. If they need to give you a speeding ticket, they will. If they need to arrest you, they will. You probably will not get lucky and be let off with a warning.
If you are taken into custody, you will be booked and arraigned. It is at your arraignment where you will be formally charged for the crime you were arrested for. You will also be notified of your bail, if you are eligible for bail. The judge may grant you bail and if so, you can post with cash bail or a bail bond.
Most people go the bail bond route because affording 100% cash bail is not easy. A bail bond will come with a professional bail agent and a customized payment plan. You will be paying 10% of the full bail amount with a flexible payment plan, which is what attracts most people to bail bonds.
