We all know that stealing, murder, and even vandalism can land you behind bars. But many times, the arrested party had no idea they could be arrested for their offense. This list provides the top reasons people were taken to jail when they didn’t know they could be.
Old Traffic Fines
Most of us have had a traffic fine at some point in our lives. The problem occurs when we get busy and forget to make the payment. This is one of the top reasons many people end up in jail.
Expired registration or Insurance
These punishments are usually handed out as fines, but if you have too many offenses, or if you have an unpaid fine balance concerning these charges, you can and sometimes are taken to jail.
Fishing Without a License
Believe it or not, poaching is a serious problem in the U.S. Therefore, if you are caught fishing without a proper license by and officer or game warden, you can be arrested on the spot.
Did you know that if your child misses a preset amount of days within a specific time period, you could be held liable in a court proceeding? Usually, these offenses are let go with a fine but forget to pay it or have multiple offenses and you could be looking at time behind bars.
