state, that the person is violating or has violated s. 945.03(2m) or 945.04(2m), or that the person is violating or has violated s. 945.05(1m) in a case in which the department determines that the video gambling machine involved
is likely to be used in connection with a violation of s. 945.03(2m) or 945.04(2m) or if a crime has been committed in the presence of the special agent. The special agent shall cause the person arrested and the documents and reports
pertaining to the arrest to be delivered to the chief of police or sheriff in the
jurisdiction where the arrest is made. The special agent shall be available as a witness for the state. A special agent acting under this section is an employee of the department and is
