Friend Gets $10,000 Bail for Defending Friend’s “Disorderly Conduct” at $250

HAWTHORNE, CA—Some friends indeed are friends in need–or so it may seem when it comes to one getting arrested for a pithy charge and his friend jumping in and getting a bail big enough to buy a new car.

Oscar Sosa, 31, was apprehended by Montebello Police Department officers on Monday, August 4 at approximately 12:30 a.m. in Montebello at 113 South 3rd Street. The Montebello resident was charged with “Disorderly Conduct: Alcohol” (647(F)/PC/M, which in layman’s terms is drinking in public. Sosa’s bail was set at $250, which means that he could be set free for as little as $25 and a promise to appear in court.

According to police arrest records, the self-proclaimed 6’1”, 220-lb. construction worker, who has a tattoo of a female face on his chest, had in his possession a cell phone with no battery.

Manuel Campos, 28, was arrested at the same time and place. It is believed that Campos was with Sosa and may have interfered with police as they attempted to question and/or detain him. Campos, however, was arrested for obstructing a police officer/etc. (148(A)(1)/PC/M, a charge which brought a considerably higher bail: $10,000.

The irony may be that Sosa, who is employed, should be able to easily make bail whereas Campos–who may have been able to avoid being arrested–was described in police records as being “self-employed” and may have a harder time trying to raise bail.
