My friend has been held in jail (at the police department) for 18 hours and has not been told why he was arrested. The police say he will be arraigned on Tuesday (at least 60 hours in jail), but will not release him on bail because we cannot provide a government-issued ID for him. Apparently, this was the bail commissioner's decision, likely made after my friend told the police that he does not have any current ID.
There would be no cause to guess that he is an illegal immigrant, as they know who he is and where he went to college. He was likely arrested on a warrant, since police entered the house without permission, yet neither the detectives nor the police would show the warrant to a resident of the house. Lots of issues here, but I just want him out as soon as possible.
