If any person be arrested for a riot, rout or unlawful
assemblage, he shall be taken without unreasonable delay before a
justice of the county in which the arrest is made who shall commit
him to jail, unless he shall enter into a recognizance, with

of the offense, at its next term, to answer therefor, and in the
meantime to be of good behavior and to keep the peace.
