NO, They might , IF they wanted to go that route, charge you with "hindering a secured creditor" if you wont give up the car.
No this is a civil matter you will not be arrested for ANYTHING related to not paying your car loan.The above poster is wrong he is a repo guy who tells people these kinds of things to make his job easier.
An arrest warrant can be issued for something such as an FTA (failure to appear in court), a criminal arrest warrant is issued for an individual who has been charged with a criminal offense, even so they are both basically the same.
Sure, a warrant is issued for each and every crime you are charged with, even if you are already incarcerated.
If you are purchasing an automobile can the dealership file a warrant for your arrest if you miss a payment?
If you have been charged with a crime, and are not in custody yet, or have failed to appear in court to answer the charge, a criminal arrest warrant will be issued.
A person can always be always be arrested and charged with a crime if there is sufficient evidence to warrant the arrest.
A friend of mine is being charged with possession and we were wondering if there are any arrest warrants on him. Where can I search for arrest warrants online?
With an arrest.
A repo man can not issue a warrant for your arrest. Only a judge can issue an official arrest warrant.
The court clerk will have the original arrest warrant on file. You can get a copy from them.
Without a warrant you must find reasonable grounds to arrest someone, whereas with a warrant your reason to arrest the suspect already exists. Without a warrant a Police Officer can arrest anyone without permission of a Magistrate as long as they follow the correct procedures so their arrest is lawful, which is unlike an arrest with a warrant where you must be granted the warrant to be able to arrest that person. Without a warrant, a Police Officer can mess the arrest up and make it an unlawful arrest but with a warrant it is very unlikely that they make it an unlawful arrest.
Technically they cant unless they have a search warrant not an arrest warrant.
if you have a warrant the police can arrest you regardless of where you are best bet is to call the department that has the warrant and try to come to a conclusion on how to solve the warrant before they do arrest you and it is on their terms
