Nevada Revised Statutes Section 179.205 - Procedure in Criminal Cases

Arrest without warrant. The arrest of a person may be lawfully made also by any peace officer or a private person, without a warrant upon reasonable information that the accused stands charged in the courts of a state with a crime punishable by death or imprisonment for a term exceeding 1 year; but when so arrested the accused must be taken before a judge or magistrate with all practicable speed and complaint must be made against him under oath setting forth the ground for the arrest as in NRS 179.203. Thereafter his answer shall be heard as if he had been arrested on a warrant.
