NRS 171.1771 Issuance of citation when person detained by peace officer. Whenever any person is detained by a peace officer for any violation of a county, city or town ordinance or a state law which is punishable as a misdemeanor and the person is not required to be taken before a magistrate, the person shall, in the discretion of the peace officer, either be given a misdemeanor citation, or be taken without unnecessary delay before the proper magistrate. Any such person shall be taken before the magistrate when the person does not furnish satisfactory evidence of identity or when the peace officer has reasonable and probable grounds to believe the person will disregard a written promise to appear in court.
