You must have allowed a witness to get away. You were not identified as Arthur Morgan by the witness, but your description was given to the Lawmen by the witness. You get a minor bounty.
Chase down the witness before he reaches a lawman and either intimidate him into silence, or kill him, without being seen by another witness. That's how you avoid a bounty when a witness saw you.

Also, for a minor bounty like that, as long as you haven't killed a lawman, you can ride into town and surrender at the sheriffs office. One night in jail and a fine equal to about 75% of your bounty. Or just pay $15 at the post office. Or let the bounty stay on your head and loot bounty hunters when they come for you. When life hands you lemons, make lemonade.

No, the bounty system is not broken. It is actually perfect.

Keep playing you will (probably) figure it out

I could explain it all in detail, but after one too many times of me taking my time to help someone I dont recognize and then not reading/seeing/getting one iota of appreciation... why would I? It seems more fun to spend the time b****ing about not getting appreciation after helping ungrateful people.

That's what's strange tho. I have had where i have been wanted even seen by a witness with a mask obviously. But get no bounty. I get away before the law arrives.
The problem with it is consistency.....

Oh well

I know all about the bounty system and I still think it's stupid. If I wear a new and a brand new outfit I've never worn before that I picked up in saint denise, and then some guy sees me steal a horse in valentine, how the hell do they identify me as Arthur?

It's just dumb.
