You cannot be arreseted it is a civil matter they can seek monetary compensation via the civil courts. I'd like to have an attorney look at this question. Not paying and hiding the car from repossession is not a crime, but if you sold the car while there was an outstanding lein, most jurisdictions have something to say about "conversion of secured property". In other words, it is usually illegal to sell something you do not own.
