If a person is arrested without a warrant in any of the following cases, the arrested person shall, without unreasonable delay, be taken before the magistrate who is nearest or most accessible within the Judicial District as provided in Section 13 of Chapter IV of the Code of Criminal Procedure, Act. No. 175 of the Public Acts of 1927, being Section 764.13 of the Michigan Compiled Laws, or, if a minor, before the probate court within the county in which the offense charged is alleged to have been committed:
(a) If the person is arrested upon a charge of negligent homicide.
(b) If the person is arrested under M.C.L.A. 257.625 (a), (3), (4) or (5), or an ordinance substantially corresponding to M.C.L.A. 257.625 (1) or (3).
(c) If a person is arrested under M.C.L.A. 257.626 or an ordinance substantially corresponding to that section. If under the existing circumstances it does not appear that releasing the person pending the issuance of a warrant will constitute a public menace, the arresting officer may proceed as provided by M.C.L.A. 257.728.
(d) If a person arrested does not have in his or her immediate possession a valid operator's or chauffeur's license or the receipt described in M.C.L.A. 257.311a. If the arresting officer otherwise satisfactorily determines the identity of the person and the practicability of subsequent apprehension in the event of the person's failure to voluntarily appear before a designated magistrate or probate court as directed, the officer may release the person from custody with instructions to appear in court, given in the form of a citation as prescribed in M.C.L.A. 257.728.
