Yesterday you were barbequing with friends in the backyard, and today you are sitting in a cell at the jail waiting for someone to tell you when you get to go home. You remember the whole thing – the argument, the police, the handcuffs. All you can do is shake your head that it got so out of control and wait for someone to tell you how to get out of jail so you can apologize. Here are a few things you should know about being arrested.
Once you were arrested and given your Miranda warning, you begin the booking process. You will be fingerprinted, and a photograph will be taken of you from several angles. Some questions about your family, personal dimensions, and clothing size may be asked, and then some jurisdictions give you a jumpsuit to wear. Then back into the cell you go.
