In this section "peace officer" has the meaning given it in section, subdivision 1, paragraph (c).
In any case in which a person licensed under section, subdivision 1, may by law, either with or without a warrant, arrest a person for a criminal offense committed within the jurisdiction of the officer, and the person to be arrested escapes from or is out of the county, statutory or home rule charter city, or town, the officer may pursue and apprehend the person to be arrested anywhere in this state.
When a person licensed under section, subdivision 1, in obedience to the order of a court or in the course and scope of employment or in fresh pursuit as provided in subdivision 2, is outside of the person's jurisdiction, the person is serving in the regular line of duty as fully as though the service was within the person's jurisdiction.
A peace officer, as defined in section, subdivision 1, paragraph (c), who is off duty and outside of the jurisdiction of the appointing authority but within this state may act pursuant to section when and only when confronted with circumstances that would permit the use of deadly force under section . Nothing in this subdivision limits an officer's authority to arrest as a private person. Nothing in this subdivision shall be construed to restrict the authority of a political subdivision to limit the exercise of the power and authority conferred on its peace officers by this subdivision.
