A peace officer may arrest a person when the officer has a warrant commanding that
the person be arrested or when the officer believes on reasonable grounds:
(1) that a warrant for the person's arrest has been issued in this state, except that
unless otherwise provided by law, a warrant for violation of a city ordinance may
not be acted upon unless the person is located within the limits of the city in which
the violation is alleged to have occurred; or
(2) that a felony warrant for the person's arrest has been issued in another jurisdiction.
FindLaw Codes may not reflect the most recent version of the law in your jurisdiction. Please verify the status of the code you are researching with the state legislature or via Westlaw before relying on it for your legal needs.
