question about trespassing

Can a city police officer write a ticket to charge a person for trespassing on a state statute in a city court.

He wrote a ticket or trespassing. The City doesn't have any trespassing laws. The law he sited was a state statue. And the person arrest is to appear in a City court.

ALSO, in the latter of trespassing. Is there any state law in Missouri that states that it is illegal to walk on or over or near a rail road track. That is another ticket the officer wrote.

ALSO, can a police officer file a criminal complaint of trespassing if the owner of the property does not file a complaint?
