Release on Citation in Misdemeanor Cases

"The Best Defense"

Can the police arrest you in Minnesota when you are suspected of committing a misdemeanor offense? If the police do not have a warrant but have decided to proceed with the prosecution, you must be released on a citation. There are a few exceptions to the rule: (1) If the police reasonably believe that an arrest is necessary to protect yourself or another from bodily harm or to prevent further criminal conduct, you may be arrested; (2) if there is a substantial likelihood that you will not appear in court, you will be arrested;(3) if there is probable cause to believe you committed a DWI offense, you will be arrested; or (4) if you are suspected of domestic abuse, you will be arrested. Knowledge of the law is "The Best Defense."
