What do I do if I was told by the police that I have a warrant but I've never been arrested there? 2 Answers as of September 03, 2017

When the police ran my name during a traffic stop, they told me that I have a warrant in another county. I've never been arrested or received a ticket in that county, ever. I did lose my passport a while ago. Could someone else have used it when they got charged? What should I do?

You don't need to have been arrested to have a warrant outstanding. You should hire a lawyer to go to court to recall the warrant. A lawyer can do this without you present if the underlying charge is a misdemeanor, so it is less risky for you.
