    The operitive part of this is:

    OR whoever, WHEN ARRESTED upon a warrant for an alleged crime, or when arrested while committing a breach or disturbance of the public peace, is armed with or has on his person, or has on his person or under his control in a vehicle, a billy or other dangerous weapon other than those herein mentioned and those mentioned in paragraph (a)
    The qualifier "OR...WHEN ARRESTED...has on his person".... leads many to beleive a "billy" (baton) is legal to carry, and only becomes illegal when you are arrested for something, related or not.
