Be arrested, be cleared of all charges, pay for the privelege

So a guy gets himself arrested (no, not me – I don’t know who this guy is – see the link below).  He is in jail for a week while friends try to gather bail money.  He is eventually cleared of all charges, or the charges are found to be without merit.

Do they get their bail money back?  Nope, the state keeps $750 of it for administrative costs.

Yeah, the guy loses a week of his life to jail, plus whatever legal fees he and his friends had to incur, and then the state steals money from him.

Good news all around!
