We 1st question that comes to mind? WHY would you do that? Why get involved in something that's NOT your problem? Are you benefiting from this in some way? IF you wont give the car to the repoman, TAKE it back to the DEBTOR and tell them to handle their problems themselves. ANSWER; in some states YES. CA in particular frowns on it.

MY ANSWER; In Arizona we drove our vehicle everywhere, we just had to hide it from the Ford repo. guys. Its beenover five years and ford no longer wants the vehicle. The X still has to pay for it..I have it in Washington state now and have had a protection order through the courts to prevent the X from taking it. In Arizona and Wash. I have been pulled over by police and never had a problem, just a few tickets.


A civil action can be taken against you in a court. In Georgia, O.C.G.A. 16-9-51 "Hiding, encumbering or endangering property subject to security interest........" is a Misdemeanor charge that I have employed multiple times to "squeeze" the necessary whereabouts of a specific vehicle, piano, diamond ring from a debtor. If the warrant does not "squeeze" the way I want, then there is an outstanding warrant for your arrest on the books. The next time the person is pulled over.....In the slammer and only a judge can let them out! So consult the Law books in your state abnd find out if this type of action applies. If it does not then the only thing you have to worry about is the debt on your credit.

Its really a moot point because you are NOT hiding a car from the repoman. YOU wouldn't do that. And the lowly repoman CANT file the charges anyway. S/he doesnt have that authority to act on behalf of the lender. The lender wouldn't waste anymore money on the clunky car you alledgedly are hiding. IF they could put you in jail, how would you ever pay the money you owe?????

Can you be arrested for repossession of a car?

Repossession of a carDo you mean, "can you be arrested for not allowing repossession of a car?" If so, then yes, you can.If you meant 'can you be arrested for repossessing a car?" you can't as long as you have a permit/license to do so and conduct yourself in a lawful manner duriong the actual repossession.Added; In potentially violent situations, repossessors will sometimes call law enforcement and ask them to 'stand by' while they take the vehicle, but only to prevent a breach of the peace. Law enforcment will play no part in assisting in the actual repossession of the vehicle, inasmuch as repossession is done under a civil court order, and is not a criminal matter

You won't be arrested and the police won't come after you it is a civil matter not criminal. You may be right, you won't be arrested and the police won't come after you but if it's a Felony in California and Florida to hide a vehicle from repossession, how is that a civil matter? Sounds criminal to me but nobody will enforce it.
