restraining order

My younger brother recently broke up with his girlfriend of 4yrs. She still calls him just as much as he calls her to try to work things out. although she is not ''all there.'' Two days ago the police department asked him to come down to speak with him and they arrested him because she took out a restraining order on him the day before but he did not know this. are they allowed to arrest him like they did and hold him for two days in jail and then make him sign the restraining order papers after? like i stated neither did him or anyone of us was aware there was a restraining order. if we knew that first he would of avoided her.
