901.) An arrest is taking a person into custody, in a case and in the manner authorized by law. An arrest may be made by a peace officer or by a private person. An arrest is made by an actual restraint of the person, or by submission to the custody of an officer. The person arrested may be subjected to such restraint as is reasonable for his arrest and detention.
902.) Any peace officer who has reasonable cause to believe that the person to be arrested has committed a crime may use reasonable force to effect the arrest, to prevent escape or to overcome resistance. A peace officer who makes or attempts to make an arrest need not retreat or desist from his efforts by reason of the resistance or threatened resistance of the person being arrested; nor shall such officer be deemed an aggressor or lose his right to self-defense by the use of reasonable force to effect the arrest or to prevent escape or to overcome resistance.
903.) A peace officer may arrest a person in obedience to a warrant, when the officer has probable cause to believe that the person to be arrested has committed a crime in the officer's presence, or when the officer has probable cause to believe that the person to be arrested has committed a felony.
904.) A private person may detain another for a felony crime committed or attempted in their presence. A private person who has detained another for the commission of a crime must, without delay, notify a peace officer of the detainment.
905.) A peace officer may conduct an arrest, upon notification by a private person of a detainment, at the request of that person if said request is provided to the peace officer with evidence of an offense having been committed, and all records pertaining to the arrest must state the name of the private citizen ordering the person to be arrested.
906.) An arrest by a peace officer acting under a warrant is lawful even though the officer does not have the warrant in his possession at the time of the arrest, but if the person arrested so requests it, the warrant shall be shown to him as soon as opportunity presents.
907.) A peace officer may detain someone for up to 48 hours, in relation to an active investigation. During such a period, they will be held in police custody, and may upon request contact their legal representation.
