The only way someone can be arrested for driving a car when the bank wants to repo it is if it is reported stolen. The bank must report repo action to police or court before this can call stolen. Most bank will report to police or court for repo action. This will let police know that it not stolen by repo. Most bank do not want to report to police or court. It involame alot of money (impound cost by police, towing fee with police, court cost, filing fee, court fee, etc). Bank hire repro is cheaper then report to police or court. I am not sure what the complication would be if you were trying to register it again after a couple of years though. But from my experience, do not park the vehicle anywhere near your house where iti can be seen. Repomen are always on the hunt, and if they see your car at anytime, then they are goign to be quick to try and get it.

Yes, all the bank cares about is that someone is making the payments.

Typically, when a person is arrested for driving under the influence, there is a court date given. After a conviction, court costs and fines will be paid and the driver's license of the offender is revoked for a period of time.

No. In my experience and from what I've read, it is not wise to lease a car from someone with a loan. They can still be held responsible for the car if anything happens to it. If you cannot afford to make the payments and the bank comes to collect the car, and the owner does not have it, they can be arrested.

Since you know that someone got arrested in YOUR car then call the nearest police station (or where the person got arrested) and they will tell you where the car is and how to get it out.
