Many people are surprised to learn that some arrestees will not need to hire a bondsman in Alameda County. If someone is arrested for a relatively minor offense the defendant may be released on their own recognizance (OR). In other cases, officers will book them into the system, write them a citation and send them on their way. That type of release is called a cite out. If a defendant is not required to hire a bondsman this is not to say they are free and clear of future responsibility. They will still be required to return to court in order to resolve their case.
Examples of minor offenses that may not require bail bonds would include things like being drunk in public or a basic first time DUI. If someone is arrested for driving while under the influence and does not have a prior history of arrest, they cooperated with officers, did not attempt to flee the scene, did not get into an accident and did not have any minors in the car they may be eligible for this type of release.
