Elizabethan justice

I've looked all over and can't find the exact information I need, so if anyone can supply it or point me in the right direction, I'd be grateful.

It's 1600, Bankside, in London. A four-man brawl has just been broken up - three of the brawlers end up at Queen's Bench, charged convicted, fined. My question is, since there was no police force, who apprehends them? Where are they held until they make bail? About how much would each man, convicted of assault and "disturbing the peace", be fined?

Thanks in advance!
