*** So here we were watching Blues Brothers for the first time, and I, daughter of two musicians who were also part of a small local band, am the one laughing my head off at the 'microphone' line because I actually knew that a good quality microphone (like the little thing you hold in your hand when you wing) can easily cost more than a used motor vehicle...

** It's possible that he might have been trying to con them into paying a fine due to their lack of "permits" in order for the Blue Brothers to pay off their bar tab. When the band leader reacted hostilely, Jake probably saw that that plan wouldn't work and decided to just make a break for it instead.

*** Certainly implied when Jake and Elwood arrive at the soul food restaurant to pick up Matt "Guitar" Murphy and Blue Lou, and end up comparing notes with Matt about the quality of the food in various local prisons.

** Could be that Jake was trying to protect the rest of the band, in the other car. Give them a longer head start, and draw the Good Ol' Boys' ire by giving them the Bluesmobile to fixate on.

** According to the tie-in book, they were all arrested on other charges - don't forget that several of them helped Elwood steal the big loudspeaker they strap to the top of the Bluesmobile, and it's possible they're all considered accomplices to the fraud at Bob's Country Bunker, and for assisting the brothers' escape from the police lines at the Palace Hotel Ballroom.

** Maybe it's a callback to the first film - what were they going to do, take away the one thing that kept him going in there? They took the liberty of bullshitting him.
