How to Handle a Holiday DUI Arrest

DUI Arrests and The Holiday Season

Finding out a loved one has been arrested during the holiday season will most certainly dim the “bright” in your “merry.” With law enforcement more vigilant than ever about making DUI arrests, it’s critical to understand how the bail bond process works so you can get your loved one out of jail quickly.

Why are Holiday Arrests Complicated?

It’s not so much that the process of getting a bail bond is any different during the holiday season — it’s the backup in the courts that are the issue. Getting arrested during the holidays has its own set of issues as compared to other times throughout the year. Not only do the courts get flooded with DUI and other arrests, court closings for holiday observances and less accommodating hours of operation also play a role in delays as well.

What to Do After a DUI Arrest

If your loved one has been arrested for a DUI, it’s imperative to be able to get them out of jail as quickly. Contact a bail bondsman as soon as possible and provide the following information:

  • Name and address of the jail in which they are being held
  • The full legal name of the person who has been arrested
  • The booking number
  • The amount of bail needed for release

Avoid Getting Arrested During the Holidays

We understand that mistakes can happen. When possible, avoid a DUI arrest by taking precautions such as assigning a designated driver. If you have been drinking, whether you feel “okay to drive” or not, leave your car and call a taxi, family member, or rideshare service to get you home safely.
