If they are arrested, then the judge does not have to sign anything. There should be an Arraignment within 72 hours where the court will listen to the statement of facts read by the District Attorney - a plea will be required and then a bond will be set or the person released to the community on their own personal recognizance meaning without a bond.

the officers arrested him because rangers said he looked suspicious do they have to prove probable cause for the arrest?



Yes. And they have 72 hours to bring it to arraignment or be released

I suggest he not talk to anyone or give an answers to any questions without an attorney present. Or that will add to the fishing expedition of gaining evidence.
