When Poncherello goes to bail out Williams, he is seen entering an LAPD building. Prisoners in California are handled by Sheriffs so the LAPD would have no involvement in a CHP arrest.
It is possible that the suspect hasn't yet been arraigned, so he's not technically in jail; he's in a holding cell. Almost all LAPD stations have holding cells. Prisoners aren't transported to county jails (run by sheriff's deputies) until they are arraigned.
Since the suspect was arrested by the CHP, it's unlikely that he would be turned over to the LAPD, yet it's also possible that he was wanted by the LAPD on previous charges or that it simply made more sense to detain him at the closest LAPD station. CHP Central is nowhere near Mulholland Drive. See more
