Don't let Halloween and drunken driving go hand-in-hand. If you're drinking, don't drive. If you've been arrested for a DUI, call our Port Huron area bail bond agents for assistance.Halloween is usually a time for kids to enjoy being their favorite characters – Elsa from Frozen, the Black Panther, Pennywise the Clown (IT), or regular old ghosts, witches, goblins, and pirates.

This is also the time when that “child-like happiness” carries over to adults and Halloween parties. These types of parties offer more than just dunking for apples. Adults prefer a Pirate Mary, some Grave Digger Shots, tasty Witches Brew Cocktails or a few Poison Apples. All of this can lead to a whopping hangover the next day, but it can also land you in jail! Why? Being pulled over and arrested for driving under the influence.

If you are arrested and booked while driving under the influence, your first priority is what needs to be done in order to get out of jail. This is where the expert bond agents at Detroit Bail Bonds of Port Huron can assist you.

The Booking Process

During the booking process, police officers will take your personal information and do a search that looks for any prior arrests or criminal activity. You will be searched, fingerprinted, and photographed, and your personal property will be taken and held until your release. Finally, you will be put into a holding cell.

Getting Released

In order to get out of jail, you will have to post bail after being booked. Bail consists of cash, property, and/or a bond provided to the court as your agreement to appear for all scheduled court hearings. If you fail to show up for any of the court dates, you will lose your posted bail and a warrant will be issued for your arrest.

The Bail Amount

The amount of bail you will need to post may range from several hundred dollars to several thousand dollars, including court costs, penalties, fines and fees. You could also be assigned a specific amount of jail time and community service hours. When determining bail, the court will review your current and/or past criminal record, the seriousness of your DUI (such as if anyone was injured at the time of your arrest), and whether or not you are considered a risk for skipping bail. The more prior arrests or offenses found on your record, the higher your bail amount will most likely be, as compared to a first-time offender.

If you or your family cannot post the amount required for your release, Detroit Bail Bonds of Port Huron can help you with the financial arrangements. We can also answer many of your questions about your DUI arrest and get you released from jail as quickly as possible.

Professional bail bond agents are available 24/7 and can also give you bond assistance over the phone. You can reach us toll-free at (855) 313-BAIL (2245), or visit our Detroit Bail Bonds in Port Huron website for more information.
