Please clarify your specific problem or add additional details to highlight exactly what you need. As it's currently written, it’s hard to tell exactly what you're asking. See the How to Ask page for help clarifying this question.If this question can be reworded to fit the rules in the help center, please edit the question.
Jailed? Incarcerated? If not those, they're a place to start a thesaurus search.
And I would bet the term you heard is "behind bars" not "behind the bars".
