Arrest Without Arrest Warrant
Is it possible for the police to arrest a person without any arrest warrant?

As long as the police have good reason (called "probable cause") to believe that a crime has been committed and that the person they want to arrest committed the crime, they can, with just one exception, make an arrest without asking a judge for a warrant.
In cases of Cognizable Offense there is no warrant required for an arrest to be made.
