Question:

Will the case against me be thrown out if the police failed to obtain an arrest warrant?

Answer:

As long as a police officer has probable cause to believe that a crime was committed and that the arrestee committed it, a warrantless arrest usually is valid. In general, police officers need to obtain arrest warrants only when they intend to enter a suspect’s dwelling in a nonemergency situation.
