Art. 15.02. REQUISITES OF WARRANT.  It issues in the name of "The State of Texas", and shall be sufficient, without regard to form, if it have these substantial requisites:

Art. 15.03. MAGISTRATE MAY ISSUE WARRANT OR SUMMONS.  (a) A magistrate may issue a warrant of arrest or a summons:
1. In any case in which he is by law authorized to order verbally the arrest of an offender;
2. When any person shall make oath before the magistrate that another has committed some offense against the laws of the State;  and
3. In any case named in this Code where he is specially authorized to issue warrants of arrest.
(b)  A summons may be issued in any case where a warrant may be issued, and shall be in the same form as the warrant except that it shall summon the defendant to appear before a magistrate at a stated time and place.  The summons shall be served upon a defendant by delivering a copy to him personally, or by leaving it at his dwelling house or usual place of abode with some person of suitable age and discretion then residing therein or by mailing it to the defendant's last known address.  If a defendant fails to appear in response to the summons a warrant shall be issued.
