Requirements for an Arrest in San Antonio, Texas

The Fourth Amendment of the Constitution states that law enforcement is required to have probable cause to arrest an individual without a warrant. Probable cause means that there must be a certain amount of compelling evidence for the arrest to happen.

Only factual and objective circumstances can be considered probable cause. Gut feelings or suspicions are not viable enough for police officers to make an arrest. It’s unlawful for an officer to arrest a person based on discrimination or a simple “hunch.” Normally, the probable cause for a police officer is to witness the offense being committed in his or her plain view.

Additionally, an officer may not enter a residence to make an arrest unless:

  • A person who resides in the residence consents to the entry; or
  • Exigent circumstances require the officer making the arrest to enter the residence without the consent of a resident without a warrant.

Arrest Warrants in Bexar County, Texas

An arrest warrant gives law enforcement the legal right to arrest someone for allegedly committing a crime. A judge signs a viable arrest warrant when they are given an affidavit. The affidavit must present probable cause to believe that the alleged offender is linked to a crime.

If an individual is given a court date and doesn’t appear in court, he or she may be issued a bench warrant. A bench warrant is used to issue an arrest for an alleged offender who has violated a court order. This is unlike arrest warrants, which are for individuals who are accused of a crime.
