I presume this is a civil debt that you have not repaid. They can sue you in civil court, but you cannot be arrested or jailed for a civil judgment unless you are held in contempt, which is highly unlikely, and only after judgment has been entered against you.

    I don't know what Title Max is but I am assuming you are talking about a debt. In general, the Constitution prohibits imprisonment for debt. The only exception is criminal fines and restitution. If a collection agent is threatening to have you arrested, he or she is in violation of the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act.

    Yes, especially IF you hide the vehicle, because they have a security interest in the vehicle you pawned. Good luck.
