Arrested at a Golden Knights game? Here’s what to expect
Hockey fans arrested at Golden Knights games at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas eventually get transported to and booked at the Clark County Detention Center. The jail is about eight miles away from the arena. Most arrestees are allowed to bail out and stay out of custody while their criminal case is ongoing.
Arrestees who do not bail out get a 72-hour hearing (“initial appearance”) three judicial days after the arrest. This hearing serves as the arraignment. And the arrestee (or his/her lawyer) can use the hearing to request that the court reduce bail or release the arrestee on his/her own recognizance (O.R. release).
The court returns bail money after the case completely ends. Arrestees who cannot put up the entire bail amount can hire a bail bondsman, usually for just 15% of the entire bail amount. Then after the case closes weeks or months later, the court returns the bail money to the bail bondsman.
