How Students Can Get Out of Jail After Being Arrested on Spring Break

Every year during the spring, college students enjoy a week off, and during spring break, they may become involved in a variety of activities that could lead to arrests and criminal charges. While the ongoing COVID-19 crisis may mean that fewer students will be traveling to exotic destinations or other popular gathering places, they will most likely still be celebrating their time off, and they may face the possibility of being arrested no matter where they are located. For these students, getting out of jail quickly is essential, since they will need to be able to return to class once spring break is over. Fortunately, with the help of a bail bondsman, students or their family members can post bail, get released, and ensure they meet all requirements during their criminal case.

Offenses That May Lead to Spring Break Arrests

In many cases, young people may act without realizing that they could be arrested or face criminal charges, especially when they are enjoying the freedom of being an adult and are celebrating alongside their friends. Some potential charges that students may face while on spring break include:

  • Public Intoxication - The increased use of alcohol by students during spring break may lead to arrests for those who are “drunk and disorderly,” especially if they are in a public place and their intoxication affects public safety or becomes a nuisance to others. While this is usually a minor charge, a person will often be taken into custody and held in a “drunk tank,” and they will not be released until they are sober. Those who are under the age of 21 may also face charges for using alcohol as a minor.

  • DWI - During spring break, police will be on the lookout for drunk drivers, and they may pull over anyone who is driving unsafely or who appears to be intoxicated. After being arrested for DWI, a person will usually be asked to take a chemical test of their breath, blood, or urine to determine their blood alcohol level. Those who are above the legal limit or who refuse to take a chemical test may have their driver’s license suspended. If they are in a state other than their home state, the offense will be reported to their home state, which may take action to suspend their license.

  • Drug possession - In addition to alcohol, students may use a variety of other substances, such as marijuana, cocaine, ecstasy (commonly known as “Molly”), or methamphetamines. If police officers find that a person has illegal drugs on their person or in their vehicle, they may be arrested and face charges of possession of a controlled substance. Following these types of arrests, students may need to meet a number of requirements in order to be released or during their criminal case.

  • Assault - The celebratory atmosphere of spring break can cause some to act aggressively, which may lead to arguments, altercations, or fights. If police officers need to break up these types of incidents, they may arrest a person who started a fight or caused injury or harm to someone else.
