An arrest can be executed with or without a warrant. An arrest can be executed by a law enforcement officer if there is probable cause to believe a felony was committed. In misdemeanor cases, the offense must have been committed in the officer’s presence in order for the officer to legally effectuate an arrest.
An arrest can also come in the form of a warrant. Arrest Warrants can be issued by a judge or magistrate for several reasons. When a person fails to appear in court, a judge may issue a bench warrant. Bench warrants vary in amounts and are usually between $5,000 to $500,000. If one is arrested on a bench warrant, a person may post a bail for the bench warrant and get released from custody. However, if the warrant is a “no bail warrant,” then the arrested person cannot get out of jail until a judge determines so.
