If you do not turn your car over and the financial institution gets a court order can you be arrested if the repossession agent shows up with police?

Cheryl, the court order will instruct the sheriff to bring the car in or the debtor if the debtor cant/wont produce the car. Its called a 'writ of replevin".If the car has been STOLEN, go file a police report NOW. Otherwise, there's NO reason for you not to be able to produce the car for the nice sheriff. If you loaned it to someone, you can get them to bring it back to you,right? You wont have those options when the sheriff comes for the car. It will be you or the car then. Good Luck

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.

I only know about the state of Massachusetts. And yes in our state they have one hour to report the repossession to the police department in the town of which the car was taken.

"The police arrested me for loitering," is in the active voice. A passive version of this might be, "I was arrested by the police for loitering."

If you are referring to bring admitted to a hospital or institution for medical or psychiatric care - yes, you can. Your medical status does not protect you from arrest.
