Normally if you have a bench warrant you would NOT be released and would be dragged into the court where the warrant is out of. One of two things happened. You don't have a bench warrant OR the Sheriff's Department screwed it up. A distinct possibility.

If you had a warrant you would not be released unless you posted additional
bail amount. Another issue is was the first duo from the same court. Also
you Kay ne charged with a vc 23164 violation of driving with a bag of .01
or greater while on dui probation. You should consult an attorney.
