Art. 497.  Summons in misdemeanor cases

If an offense charged by indictment or information is a misdemeanor, the court may issue a summons, instead of a warrant of arrest, if it has reasonable ground to believe that the person will appear in response to a summons.  If the court issues a summons, it may later issue a warrant of arrest in place of the summons.
