Amend the bill, as and if amended, page 2, by striking lines 9-25, and inserting:
/ (B)(1) No arrest warrant shall be issued by a magistrate unless sought by:
(a) a law enforcement officer acting in the officer's official capacity;
(b) a business seeking an arrest warrant for an offense against the business;
(c) a person seeking an arrest warrant for a fraudulent check, if the fraudulent check or a legal copy of the fraudulent check is presented to the magistrate at the time the warrant is sought; or
(d) a person seeking an arrest warrant for offenses involving criminal domestic violence, harassment, assault and battery in the second degree, or assault and battery in the third degree.
(2) If an arrest warrant is sought by a person other than a person listed in subitem (B)(1), the court must issue a courtesy summons. If, after being served the summons, a defendant named in the summons fails to appear before the court pursuant to the summons, the court may issue an arrest warrant for the underlying offense based upon the original sworn statement of the person who sought the summons, provided the sworn statement establishes probable cause that the underlying offense was committed." /
