U.S. Arrests

Police arrest over ten million people in the U.S. every year (the number for 2018 is 10,310,960). So here’s my question: How many of those arrests are actually necessary? How many are for bogus “crimes” like drug possession and sales? How many are for stupid things like, effectively, “pissing off a cop”? My guess is that fewer than half of those arrests are necessary, but I don’t know.
