What Happens if You’re Arrested While You’re Out on Bail
One of the first things you’re told when the issue of bail comes up is that you can’t be involved in any criminal activity while you’re out on bail. You’re expected to be on your best behavior.
The problem is that sometimes things don’t go the way you expect and you find yourself under arrest while you’re out on bail
Don’t assume that just because you already have a bail bond that you can use that to get out of jail this time around. Not only are the two arrests separate issues, if your second arrest, the one that happened while you were out on bond, was for serious offenses, it’s possible the original bail bond will be revoked.
What your second arrest does is trigger a whole new bail process. If a judge looks at your case and decides that they are willing to give you a second chance and says that you can post bail for the most recent arrest, you’ll have to go through the same process of deciding if a loved one can post bail or if you should contact Selma Bail Bond about another bail bond.
You should be aware, the odds are good that the amount bail money needed for the second arrest is going to be substantially more than what was required the first time around.
Depending on the circumstances surrounding your case, the judge could decide that not only are they not going to allow you to post bail a second time, they may even revoke the bail from the first arrest, meaning that even if you’re able to get the charges dropped or take a plea deal for the second arrest, you will still have to remain in jail until the case surrounding your original arrest is finalized.
The best policy when you’ve been released on bail is to stay out of trouble until the case is resolved. Staying home and watching television rather than going out with your friends may seem boring, but it beats potentially doing something stupid and getting arrested while you’re already out on bail.

Getting Bailed Out of Jail After a Halloween DUI
Halloween is not a good time to be caught driving drunk. The combination of sheer number of people who are out and about on Halloween and the number of parties taking place means that the police will be out in force and they’re going to be actively looking for drunk drivers. They want to catch a drunk driver before they get into an accident, so they’ll pull over and check anyone who is driving even the slightest bit erratically. If a breathalyzer indicates that you’re over the legal limit, you’ll be arrested.
Getting arrested for drunk driving on Halloween is never any fun. It’s a busy night at the jail and it always seems like the jail is understaffed. This means it could take hours just to get through the booking process. After that, you’ll be put into a holding cell, and since it’s Halloween, there will likely be other people in the cell, making it impossible for you to get some privacy so you can work through your thoughts.
