Can you be expedited from Florida to South Carolina for a felony warrant?

Murrells Inlet, SC |

If someone is in Florida and they have a felony warrant and they are arrested will the state of South Carolina come get them?

The word is EXTRADITED. And, yes, you can be extradited from any state to another for a warrant on felony charges. It is also POSSIBLE to be held and later extradited for a misdemeanor, but is rarely done, due to shortage of police personnel and cost factors.
