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.

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
