Holding cells were called "bullpens" because police officers were at the time called bulls. Bullpens are still the name inmates call holding cells. You are held in the bullpen at county jail until the bus takes you to court. At court you are held in another bullpen until you are called in front of the judge. Then you are escorted back to the bullpen and are held there until all the inmates are called in front of the judge. Then everyone is escorted back to the bus and sent back to county jail where you sit in another bullpen until you are escorted back to your housing unit.
Damn I sat in the bullpen for 8 hours today before I was called in front of the judge!
