Being arrested doesn’t necessarily mean that you will be handcuffed or physically restrained in the back of a police car. Unless you are acting in a way that threatens the arresting officer or others on the scene there should be no need for duress of any kind. It would be to your advantage to realize that the arresting officer in your case may be called to testify at your trial. The less trouble you cause him the more likely he will be to put in a good word on your behalf.
There are certain guidelines that the police have to adhere to in order to make a proper arrest. If for example, you are pulled over for some sort of traffic offense and the officer sees empty beer cans or open liquor bottles in your car he can request that you take a breathalyzer test to determine your alcohol level. If it measures over the limit the officer can legally arrest you for DUI.
Unless there was an injury involved in your arrest you will probably be allowed to arrange for your release on bail. You will still have to get through processing when you will be photographed and fingerprinted. You will also have to give up your personal possessions which will be returned to you when your bail has been posted, but you will be free to return to your home and family.
Being free on bail does not mean that you don’t still have responsibilities to the court. You will be required to appear at all the hearings leading up to and including your trial. Your bail bondsman will explain what is expected of you and remind you of the court dates as they come around. Missing a scheduled appearance could spark a warrant for your arrest and result in the judge revoking your bail.
