Arrest is number of arrest he had for same booking number.  Where are Arrest 1 and Arrest 2?

Charge #1 is the first charge.

Bail Flag: N means no bail set; cannot be bailed out on that charge.  This is why Bail Amount is $0.00.

Description is the description of the violation: here it is Violation of Parole.

Felony Code: PC Statute means Felony Code Penal Code Statute

Statute is Penal Code 3056, which is: 3056.  Prisoners on parole shall remain under the legal custody of
the department and shall be subject at any time to be taken back
within the inclosure of the prison.
