Crash after getting arrested/paying bounty, looking for solutions
For some reason, when ever i get arrested and choose one of the options i.e go to jail or pay bounty, my game crashes. This only happens though in whiterun where i have 14000+ bounty.
Help please?

It could be a fines enforcment restriction. No gameplay till you've paid up LOL. Sorry sounded funnier in my head than it actually was due to my previous job.

i think i know the problem...
right click the skyrim game in your library and click properties and go to local files then click on verify integrity of game cache. this fixed a lot of my problems after lots of play so i hope it helps!

14000 + bounty????? Dude .... LMAO what in the heck you been doing there?
I've had some bounties on my head, but nothing like that.
But seriously, the only a couple of things I can suggest and one I'm sure you won't like.
1. Reload a previous save before the bounty got out of hand.
2. Start a new game under a new character and see if the problem persists ... just do something to get arrested and see whether or not the game still crashes. You don't have to keep the character after you confirm the problem and can delete those saves related to the new character.
But if the crash doesn't happen with a new character, I suspect it's some bug related to that high bounty on the original character. In that case, I'd reload a prior save (that most likely means losing a few levels). Then go back into the town to see if the problem has cleared.

Barring that, should all else fail .... I'd start a new game and try to be more careful about hacking and slashing.

**something else just occured to me. Check to make sure the bounty on your head matches the bounty you have to pay. If they don't match, that could cause a crash. **

Incorrect. Console cheats would fix the lack of cash. You could also quickly create a follower in the creation kit and include a huge amt of gold in the followers inventory.

BTW.... did you realise the date of the post you replied to?

I don't know if you have this problem on your current save still or not but this list of codes helped me:player.setcrimegold 0 267E3
player.setcrimegold 0 28170
player.setcrimegold 0 29DB0
player.setcrimegold 0 2816D
player.setcrimegold 0 2816E
player.setcrimegold 0 2816C
player.setcrimegold 0 2816B
player.setcrimegold 0 267EA
player.setcrimegold 0 2816F

player.paycrimegold 1 0 267E3
player.paycrimegold 1 0 28170
player.paycrimegold 1 0 29DB0
player.paycrimegold 1 0 2816D
player.paycrimegold 1 0 2816E
player.paycrimegold 1 0 2816C
player.paycrimegold 1 0 2816B
player.paycrimegold 1 0 267EA
player.paycrimegold 1 0 2816F
create a text file in your data folder and call it bounty then add these codes to it.Then in game type bat bounty in the console it will remove all bounty's without the crash.enjoy;)
