Default Stopped for cracked windshield and downhill from there...?

My friend was sitting at a red light, motorcycle cop pulled up behind. Started eyeing registration tags and called them in apparently. Pulled my friend over, said he stopped him for windshield but then saw expired tags. Asked my friend to show registration, insurance and driver's license. Friend was driving a truck that didn't belong to him - it's one of his worker's. So he opens the glove and console - no registration, no insurance papers. His own driver's license is expired by 1 month (not it's not ok - he's not taken the time to do it, you know how that goes). This expired license is also out of state (we're in California). Cop then told friend to get out of car, cuffed him, sat him on curb. Truck was impounded. Friend's bail was $3,000. My question: Is this the norm for a situation like this, spending the afternoon in jail and bail like that? What happens now? Doesn't this worker have to pay anything? It wasn't his truck, and he wasn't told by the owner.
