Biggest ever bail paid by a person

When David Hasselhoff’s ex, Pamela Bach, got arrested on DUI the Hoff rushed out and paid her bail of $100,000. That’s a lot of dough. But not as much as loanmoan Al Malnik forked out to get Michael Jackson back into the open air: $3 million. A mere pittance, British billionaire banker Julius Meinl IV will tell you, compared to what he had to post after being arrested by the Austrian authorities in connection with the collapse of value of the investment fund managed by his Meinl Bank: a world record $133 million bail.

According to QuizLaw, bail can be paid in three ways: 1) personal property, 2) cash, 3) bail bondsman. The best way, of course, is to stay out of trouble.
