This isn't a glitch nor is it a bug... why would there need to be an update? If your bounty is excessively high, Guards are going to attack you regardless. If you don't want to fight, and serve your time in jail.... try sheathing your weapon (Put your weapon away). This is usually a yield, its their choice to accept; meaning it may not always work. If the case arises whereas it doesn't work, simply run away till' they stop pursuing you.

There was another person on the general forums who asked about this issue as well.  I will repost what I posted over there.

"Hello :)  I read around a few websites to try and understand what you might be going through and came across a few I hope might be able to help.  Try these and they contain some spoilers so read or watch at your own risk."

^Had to fiddle with the links a few times to get them to work but they should work now.  I tried each one out and was able to go to the page and site where I found them.

If its a Markath bounty issue, try paying it off in another part of the hold (such as a farm with a guard).  This can sometimes happen when you completed the Forsworn Conspiracy quest, the guards dialogue gets bugged and won't let you pay off a bounty.  Best way to lose a tail is to enter another area (dungeon, barrow, cave, house, etc.).  Your pursuit will stop as long as they can't actually see you entering.
