Most people who are arrested will likely work with a Contra Costa bail bondsman in order to get out of jail. There are, however, certain offenses that do not require bail bonds. These crimes are very minor in nature and may include things like public intoxication and basic DUIs.
If someone is arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence and did not resist arrest, did not get into any sort of accident, did not attempt to flee the scene and there were no minors in the car, this may be considered a basic DUI. In these instances the arresting officer most typically will take the defendant into custody, have them booked into the system and will put them in a holding cell until they sober up. Once it’s been decided it’s safe to release the defendant the officer will write them a citation, let them know when they are to appear in court and allow them to leave the jail. This is called a “cite-out”.
