Any person arrested, or appearing without arrest in response to citation or summons for violation of a nontraffic ordinance, at any time before trial, before or after arraignment, shall be eligible to be released upon giving bail for their appearance in an amount and upon conditions fixed by the judge, who shall prescribe appropriate rules of court for the receipt of bail. In case of arrests made at night or under other conditions or emergency or when the judge is not available, the rule shall authorize the chief of police, or his designated representative, to accept a temporary cash bond, not less than ten dollars ($10.00) nor more than the maximum monetary penalty provided by ordinance for such offense.
