I broke out of jail, and my bounty is high. I'd like to pay it off. How do I get them to stop attacking me so I can pay them.

I think once you've broken out of jail, the guards are going to be hostile to you in that area for a little while. Try going to another town and resting in a bed for a few days before returning. – agent86 Feb 12 '12 at 15:09

The only way to get them to stop attacking you are

  • Kill Them.
  • Run away from town and return later after some time. The higher your bounty, the longer it takes for them to stop attacking you.

Dont kill them because then you are charged with murder and it will take longer for the bounty to go away. Just run away do a quest or something and come back and everything should be fine.
