Dear JACUSTOMER - You are assuming correctly. Obviously neither you nor I know exactly what transpired at the scene so I can't comment on the facts of the case. the best advice anyone can offer at this point is for your son to keep quiet and get an attorney. If he cannot afford an attorney the court will appoint on. Hopefully he will be released on his own recognizance tomorrow but if a bond is set then someone will have to post that for him.
You should be able to contact the court tomorrow to see what happened but I would assume your son will be able to contact you directly. As for the facts of the incident that will have to be reviewed by his attorney to see exactly where he stands with respect to the charges. There is just nothing you can do today to solve the situation if there is no bail set. You can call the jail and ask if there is a bail amount that can be posted to get him out but other than that it is virtually impossible to do anything on a weekend. They have a right to hold him until tomorrow the initial appearance.
