The only option is to obtain legal representation as soon as possible.

Once a warrant has been issued by the court the person named is subject to arrest without notice.

The involved party might also wish to have a relative or friend ready to post bond, unless the warrant is for contempt of a court order in which case bail would not be an issue.


The best thing to do is return the vehicle, if you do not have the vehicle obtain an attorney or you can request a court date to go before the judge to explain the situation. "Warrants" are not issued for failure to return a vehicle, body attachments are issued, meaning a court can hold a subject to the first available court hearing. This is not a criminal complaint, but a civil complaint and just appearing in court or maybe filing an affidavit (depending on location) can resolve an issue.
