Ticket-chasing-court-watching bail bondsman... Long story short…. I had a speeding ticket and the court date was set for June 1st. I decided to take a defensive driving course to drop it off my record…no biggie. I had to send in the required payment to take the class before the court date. The letter had to be post-marked on or before the court date. I sent in the payment on Friday (certified mail just to be sure the lazy USPS people would not shaft me). Well I get a frantic call from my better half that I should not drive anywhere unless necessary because…get this…several different bail bonds companies had called to inform me that I had a warrant out for my immediate arrest for failure to appear (which in Texas they CAN arrest you for). I thought it was a crock, but was not able to calm the spousal unit down easily. I figured that there was some public record data base that showed who missed court a certain day. Kinda like when you open a new company and start getting all the credit card offers for your new business that has only been opened for 3 days. I do however have no idea how they got my home number as it’s supposed to be unlisted. I am really ticked that some rejects would call my home and upset my wife like this. Like I said several companies called and left messages. I wish there was something legal could do for upsetting my family like this
