Description

Criminal acts committed during a close pursuit; arrest warrant. Provides that if a law-enforcement officer makes an arrest without a warrant when in close pursuit and such arrest is made beyond the boundary of the county or city from which the arrestee fled, then the law-enforcement officer shall procure a warrant from the magistrate serving the county or city wherein the arrest was made, charging the accused with the offense committed in the county or city from which he fled and any offense committed during the close pursuit in the county or city where such offense was committed. Under current law, such officer would not be able to obtain a warrant from the magistrate serving the county or city wherein the arrest was made for a criminal act committed during the close pursuit beyond the boundary of the county or city from which the arrestee fled.
