NJ Spotlight News | Clip | NJ police won't arrest people with warrants of $500 or less

NJ's acting Attorney General Matt Platkin announced a directive for people who have bench warrants with bail amounts of $500 or less to no longer be arrested.

Now, instead of being locked up, they will be given a new court date and released.
