Why would my brother not get out on bond for a DUI?

My brother got arrest for DUI and he called me and said they told him he couldn't get out on bond last night. Does that mean maybe he can today? Or how long will he have to stay there? Will he have to go to court? I haven't heard from him today so I just don't know what is happening. Should I call the police station?

    Your brother may have some type of hold on him that prevents him from being bailed out. A call to the jail or police station may be helpful in finding out why he cannot be bailed out. A better option is hire an attorney to represent him (since he will need one anyway) and have the attorney find out why bail has not been set. The police or jailer will give an attorney more information than they may give you.

    They usually keep them at least until they are sober or see a judge if there are more problems with the case (like injury).

    The court will consider bond at his preliminary appearance. That hearing must take place within 72 hours of his arrest. The court will set bond at that time based on your brother's criminal history and ties to the community.

    They likely have to set a bond for him, and cannot do that until he goes to court. He will likely need a lawyer.
