2006 Alabama Code - Section 30-5A-4 — Arrest for violation of chapter.

A peace officer may arrest any person for the violation of this chapter if the officer has probable cause to believe that the person has violated any provision of a valid protection order, whether temporary or permanent, which has been served on the person or of which the person has received sufficient notice that the protection order has been issued. The officer may arrest the person without a warrant although he or she did not personally see the violation. Knowledge by the officer of the existence or contents of, or both, or presentation to the officer by the complainant of, a protection order shall constitute prima facie evidence of the validity of the order.

(Acts 1993, No. 93-325, p. 495, §4.)
