    Andrew’s Answer

    If you have any reason to believe this is true, then it would be in your best interest to retain an attorney immediately. Your attorney can check on the status of any potential warrant and guide you through the process. More importantly, the facts and evidence will need to be thoroughly reviewed. Remember, if what you heard was true, you could be arrested at anytime; so it's important to act as soon as possible.
