    We may have a bachelor party this April in Vegas. Done it before and it's ok but since i'm in the wedding party i'm obligated to go. The best man is more or less a real hothead. Not a big fan of his and when he drinks, oh boy... He thinks he's superman and an MMA fighter all in one.
    So my question here is has anyone been arrested while in Sin City or been with someone who has? How do they deal with drunk and disorderly? Is there a jail/holding facility on or near the strip? Just thought on this dreary day i'd throw this out there and start to prep.

    I have not but I have heard stories that the police simply do not play in Vegas. If you get out of line and the security at the casino has to notify the police, plan on a luxurious ride in a black and white limo to the station. It is kind of a one strike and you're out policy. So with that being said if you truly are concerned about one person int eh party, plan now on how to distance yourself quickly when the wheels start to come off.

    @nonahs I 1000% expect that this guy will be a HUGE problem. He's just the worst. Thanks for the info!

    I have not, but everything I've seen in my time there has been mostly aligned.

    The times where I've seen police tell people to chill out and move on, they do, and the police let it go. The times where the police do the same thing, and people don't chill out, they engage according to the book. Again, just my observation.

    And, I would say based on my moral and ethical compass, that each time the cops matched the scenario to the action - IE, they let things go that they should, and covered down on the things they needed to act on.

    Others may have different opinions, but this is just mine.

    I realize that I’m kind of stating the obvious here, but you may want to consider doing what you can to prevent it from getting to that point. I get it that some people really do let loose when drinking and inevitably will become a potentially dangerous problem... but it might not be the best thing to resign yourself to the assumption that he’ll get arrested. Especially because you never know how a situation like that might play out... say you have to intervene in a fight and you get arrested too because you were part of it and got caught in it. Now that’s on your record. Or say that happens to the groom, and he ends up getting held up for whatever period of time and can’t go to his own wedding. It’s playing with fire IMO.

    You’d also be risking a trespass from whatever property something happened at... whether just for him or possibly all of you. So even if the charges get dropped, you might not be able to go to some of these properties ever again. I’m sure you’re abundantly aware of all of these risks... I’m just uncomfortable with going on the “he’ll probably be arrested” assumption without providing some polite resistance.

    I certainly can’t speak from personal experience... but one idea if you’re going on the assumption of him likely to be arrested is to plan in advance to mitigate the possible damage. For instance, if you would care about getting trespassed from Property A, but wouldn’t care about Property B, perhaps lean towards spending time there instead. Might also want to consider having information for a 24 hour attorney service or bail bond place at the ready so that if it does happen you won’t be scrambling at the last minute.

    Couldn’t hurt to carry a couple of zip ties in your pocket either to restrain him if need be. Might seem silly now, but if you’re this sure things could get to “that point” with him, there’s a non-zero chance you could wish you had them on hand.

    Wait for a @FormallyTD response. I'm sure he has at least been in handcuffs -- more than once possibly naked and covered with glitter dust. :stir:

    @notfromconcentrate I understand and even agree with you. He's no friend of mine. I've met him 2x in 5 years. But the stories these guys tell about him, especially when he's away from his wife and "off the leash" are awful.
    All I was asking here was more or less what to expect when someone says "Oh X got arrested". I've bailed out friends before so I know the basic process just curious about Vegas

    A few years ago there was a reality show about cops in Vegas. The show portrayed them to be really patient with drunks. If he gets unruly and physical that may be a problem. I know that other people should not be responsible. But maybe y'all could take turns being a babysitter. Just looking out for bad behavior and trying to stop it before it starts. The last thing you want is to be stuck with wasting time trying to "fix" his legal problems. Good luck.

    Not that it will help convince him but it's not just spending the time in a cage with a bunch of other animals, which would be pretty dangerous in and of itself, but he'd have to go back at a later date(s) to go to court if it went beyond drunk and disorderly.

    There was a Las Vegas Jail Documentary show on for several seasons. I learned a lot about Vegas Jail. You are taken to the Clark County Detention Center which is downtown. Most of the people arrested are drunks. The ones that are totally out of control they put in restraints and in a isolation cell until they sober up enough so they can be booked. Depending on how stupid the act they committed, drunks are either admitted to the jail or released after a few hours of sober up time.

    I'd suggest you ask the groom in advance what he wants to do if Johnnie Best Man gets all blasted and out of control. The Groom obviously knows the potential for problems and it's his wedding. Maybe you can slip him a roofie.

    I'd probably be sick the day before the trip, and unable to make it to Las Vegas. I'm not getting involved in that kind of stuff, for anyone. And a friend wouldn't ask me to.
