What should I do if my brother called to tell me he has been arrested?

I got a phone call from my brother in jail saying he'd been arrested but he didn't know anything about bail or when/if he could come home. He didn't even tell me what he got arrested for. I'm at a loss for what to do now. Is there any way I can help him?
