the lead juror to the district court in the presence of the grand jury and must be
filed with the clerk. The district court shall then issue an arrest warrant or summons for the defendant.
(2) If a complaint or information is pending against the defendant and eight jurors
do not concur in finding an indictment, the lead juror shall report the decision to
the district court judge.
