They released him per 849(b)1 PC, it lets detectives gather more evidence before an arraignment. If he had stayed in custody he would have had to have been arraigned today. He’ll most likely be rearrested once they’ve finished collecting evidence. My money is on they’re waiting for toxicology to come back as well as the data logger from the vehicle.
