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.

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.

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

For decades, only the County Coroner had authority to serve any kind of process on the Sheriff, including a warrant of arrest. That has recently been changed. Any law enforcement officer, acting pursuant to a warrant issued by a judicial officer, would now have authority to arrest the Sheriff. The County Coroner still temporarily assumes control of the County Jail if the Sheriff has been arrested or the office of Sheriff becomes vacant.

Where are you taken when you are arrested?

It depends on what officer arrests you and where you allegedly broke the law. If you're arrested in a city by a city policeman, you'll probably go to the city's jail. If you're out in the country and you're arrested by a sheriff, you may well end up in the county jail. I believe federal law enforcement has arrangements with counties and cities to house their newly arrested suspects. I just read an article where a person who was arrested for breaking a federal law was remanded to the Marshall's custody - in a county jail.
