At some point(usualy after a writ of replevin is filed) in the repossession process, a sheriff will tell you to either produce the car or go to jail. Then you will have to make a choice, car or jail. You just cant ride for free. As for "simply not being able to locate your vehicle?": think about it, IF you didint know where the car was, you would be on your way to report it STOLEN. I know where MY car is at ALL times, I think 99% of everyone else does also. IF I were to loan it to someone, I would have a very good idea of where it was then also.

If a minor is pulled over and found with marijuana in Ohio, is it possible that a cop could simply not arrest you?

If you are told that a letter will be sent to you after lab results were taken on the marijuana telling you the situation, and you did not recieve it within 60 days or even at all, would that person be "free"?

Will I get a settlement from the sheriff's office?

Without knowing the wording of the warrant on which you were arrested it is impossible to render an opinion, but from the information posted in the discussion area, it seems unlikely. If they had a warrant for your arrest then it was issued by a judge and the deputies were simply carrying out the order in taking you to jail in order to be presented to court. If you feel you were mistreated during the arrest, you (or your g/f) may complain to the Sheriffs office about your treatment, but your being taken to jail after being arrested on a warrant is strictly normal procedure.
