Is it legal for a repossession company hired by the lien holder to call and leave a message stating you will be arrested if they have to get a sheriff?

NOT that I know of. call a local attorney for state specific advice. It's not a threat. Just a warning that IF YOU FORCE THEM TO APPLY FOR A WRIT OF REPLEVNA by refusing to surrender the car, you WILL BE ARRESTED. No! Creditors and/or their representatives cannot threaten to have you arrested or make threats period.

Of course. Anyone can be arrested.

Coroner will become sheriff when the sheriff dies or is arrested or relieved of his/her duty for what ever reason.

Not by themselves. For this to happen, a sheriff, marshal, or police officer would have to let them do so and be present. The sheriff and marshal does not need a warrant; they only need the repossession order and/or a court order. The court order is dependent on the situation.

File a lawsuit against you and the sheriff comes out and forces you to give up the car. Do not give it up and you will likely be in jail.
