after being arrested can the officers make a suspect strip and then be left locked in a cell for hours and not come back for him and then other officers transport him to jail all before being booked or being allowed to make a phone call ?
Whether a person's rights were violated depends on the specific circumstances of an arrest and subsequent detention. Based on the general description you provided, there probably was not any violation of rights. However, I recommend bringing the entire case and specific fact set to a defense attorney in the area for closer examination.
I do not see any problems here except for the phone call. See penal code section 851.5(d). That could be a basis for a complaint to the agency. I have doun]bts it is actionable for money damages.

After arrest, The police can hold a person for 48 hrs, or until arraignment, which ever comes first, as long as they had probable cause to make the arrest. A strip search is par for the course and fully constitutional after arrest. If he was forced to strip and remain naked in the cell for hours then unless there was some exigent circumstance I think that issue may be worth looking in to. However, it's hard to tell if that was the case based on your brief description of events.
