Do Tell: Who Would You Call If You Got Arrested?

Though I’ve never had a particularly negative run-in with the law, I’ve often wondered who I would call were I ever thrown in the slammer. When I was younger, I was sure that I’d never call my parents, but as an adult, they do seem like the best people to phone if I were in a jam. Now, I know we’re all law-abiding citizens here, but hypothetically speaking, do tell: Who would you call if you were arrested?

I've worked in law enforcement for almost 9 years - including an agency who had a jail. You NEVER know if someone's suicidal ... or trying to get a quick buck by "faking" suicide and then suing the jail because they "didn't take proper precautions" - so don't get upset. It's for everyone's safety. Most DIP's (Drunk In Public) are only arrested here where I work (Yes, a Virginia agency) if they're belligerent or won't listen to the officer when he/she tells them to stay inside ... but there's always a rookie who hasn't learned to pick and choose his "fights" - these are usually the guys who give tickets to the most piddly of traffic offenses, too! ;) But, to answer the original question - I'd call hubby if I were ever arrested.

Well....I don't know....considering I am someone who issues warrants and puts people in jail...including the stupid drunk in publics...FOR VIRGINIA none the less javsmavs. (And I agree, they go to the extremes sometimes...and certainly you aren't a common criminal, it's not even a jailable offense thats why you didn't have a bond. I can't believe they took your shoelaces though, thats a bit much!!!) I would probably call my mommy lol.

I would normally call my dad, but he's thousands of miles away, so he might not be of much help. I would call the only person that I am close to and lives closest to me, my boyfriend.

i guess it depends on what i was dumb enough to do to get arrested. if it was something minor (really - what's minor if you're arrested) i would call my fiance. otherwise - i might have to suck it up and call my parents and pray that they can help and get me out. i don't think that i would do very well in jail ...even for a few hours

I would definitely not call my mom since she said that if we were ever stupid enough to get put in jail she would put any effort into getting us out. So I'd call my cousin who is more like sister or my real sister.

my beau... BUT he'd probably be beside me in the cell (im such a good girl, he's the bad boy) LOL so if not him probably his folks. My dads in another country so he wouldnt be any good! LOL and he'd probably only give me a story about how silly id been.

I would call my dad if he were home or my mom at work. If I ever got arrested it would be a mistake. My dad is a cop and he and my mom have bailed my sister out a few times and I would never do anything wrong to be brought into jail. I know my rights and for the most part all the laws of New York.

I'd call the boyfriend, I'm sure he would be able to handle everything from there (call my family, lawyer, etc)

I can't even imagine getting thrown in jail, hahahah. I would probably be to embarrassed to call either of my parents. I would call a good friend of mine, (one of the crazier ones so they wouldn't judge, LMAO,hahahahhahahha!). :-)
