2A:67-8. Warrant in lieu of writ; arrest of person having custody of person detained
A judge of the superior court may, when it shall appear by satisfactory proof that anyone is held in illegal confinement or custody and there is good reason to believe that he will be taken out of the state or suffer some irreparable injury before he can be relieved by the issuance of a habeas corpus, issue a warrant under his hand and seal reciting the facts and directed to any sheriff, constable or other person, commanding him to take the prisoner and forthwith bring him before the court to be dealt with according to law.
If the proof shall also be sufficient to justify an arrest of the person having the prisoner in his custody, as for a criminal offense committed in the taking or detaining of the prisoner, the warrant may also contain an order for the arrest of such person for such offense.
