Warrants

Depending on the circumstances, the police can make an arrest for committing a crime with or without an arrest warrant.

After an arrest for a misdemeanor without a warrant, the crime must be committed in the officer’s presence unless a statutory exception applies. If the officer suspects that you committed a crime, then the officer can go to a judge to ask for a warrant for your arrest.
