Understanding the Arrest

Arrests must be based on probable cause. While there is no simple test to define probable cause, the police must rely on what they believe to be good information.

MISDEMEANORS: Arrests can only be made for crimes which occur in the presence of the person making the arrest, or with a warrant. For this reason, shoplifting arrests are technically made by a store security guard. (The police actually effectuate the arrest.)
