Asked in Arkansas
Who can arrest the sheriff in Arkansas?
For decades, only the County Coroner had authority to serve any kind of process on the Sheriff, including a warrant of arrest. That has recently been changed. Any law enforcement officer, acting pursuant to a warrant issued by a judicial officer, would now have authority to arrest the Sheriff. The County Coroner still temporarily assumes control of the County Jail if the Sheriff has been arrested or the office of Sheriff becomes vacant.

What does body attachment mean when getting arrested?
Where are you taken when you are arrested?
It depends on what officer arrests you and where you allegedly broke the law. If you're arrested in a city by a city policeman, you'll probably go to the city's jail. If you're out in the country and you're arrested by a sheriff, you may well end up in the county jail. I believe federal law enforcement has arrangements with counties and cities to house their newly arrested suspects. I just read an article where a person who was arrested for breaking a federal law was remanded to the Marshall's custody - in a county jail.
Is it legal for a repossession company hired by the lien holder to call and leave a message stating you will be arrested if they have to get a sheriff?
NOT that I know of. call a local attorney for state specific advice. It's not a threat. Just a warning that IF YOU FORCE THEM TO APPLY FOR A WRIT OF REPLEVNA by refusing to surrender the car, you WILL BE ARRESTED. No! Creditors and/or their representatives cannot threaten to have you arrested or make threats period.

What do you call the main sheriff?
Sheriff -------------- Additional: (in the US) the Office of Sheriff is established in the state constitution and there is only one Sheriff per jurisdiction (usually a county, altho some large cities also have a Sheriff). There is only one Sheriff, and his correct title is SHERIFF. All other employees of the Sheriff's Department, regardless of their rank or title, is a DEPUTY Sheriff.
Can an off duty Cobb county Ga police officer arrest someone in Cherokee County Ga if they have not broken the law?
POSSIBLY. Not enough is known to answer the question. Arrest them for WHAT? Was he serving a warrant? What was the arrested person charged with? What were the circumstances? Was the Cobb County officer a POLICE officer or were they actually a Deputy SHERIFF? It does make a difference as the two can have different jurisdictional authority. Also, an arrested person will ALWAYS to claim they were arrested "for nothing."
