An arrest is the removal of a persons freedom if they are suspected of having commuted or of planning to commit a crime. An indictment is an official accusation. For more information please visit http://www.ask.com/wiki/Indictment and http://www.ask.com/wiki/Arrest.
It depends on each city and the amount of pending cases. It can also change depending on the severity of the crime, but normally within 24 hours.
The time period between arrest and indictment depends on the crime and the situation. It can be a few days or a few months.
The time between arrest and indictment is typically less than 24 hours. If you are arrested on the weekend, it is possible you won't be indicted until the following Monday.
