While police can take you into custody if they witness you committing a crime, the most common way that it happens is for a judge to issue an arrest warrant. In order for law enforcement officials to get this order from a magistrate, the affidavit must be truthful and contain an accurate presentation of probable cause. Once you've been arrested, you'll be remanded to a local intake facility to await an arraignment hearing, at which time the court will set the amount of money you'll need to be released. It's certainly possible to post the sum yourself, but many people turn to bail bond companies instead.
If you've been arrested in Travis County, San Marcos, Cedar Park, Williamson County, Georgetown, Round Rock, Buda, Pflugerville, Kyle or Leander, contact Austin Bail Bonds to arrange your release from jail.
