Once a traffic stop has been initiated, an officer has the discretion to either write a ticket or issue a "warning" (either verbal or written). Moreover, an officer has thirty days after the traffic stop to serve that ticket. If an occupant was arrested during the stop, the arrest must be based upon probable cause. After the initial arrest, the suspect must be issued a Complaint in the form of a Summons or a Warrant stating the charges and the basis of the probable cause which then must be approved by a judge or magistrate. ...
