Is there any way to escape after youv chosen to be arrested or are you supposed to be killed here by Shilard's men ?
There's a QTE sequence where Geralt burns the bonds with Igni. If you succeed you will free yourself and progress the story normally. If you can't see the QTE icon make sure you have latest graphic card drivers installed.
