How is this possible?

Asked about 1 year ago - Savannah, GA

On an unrelated search warrant to our home in July 2013 my husband got arrested for having a marijuana plant. The detectives called me to let me know they were taking him in. I left work and came home. They detained him and asked me if I would come to the station to talk to them as well. I went, no handcuffs. They did not place me under arrest. They questioned us trying to get us to take ownership of the plants. My husband said it was his, I said it was his. They took him to lock up and he got a bail. I went back home. He has no court date as yet, and none scheduled. Now, in November we are out of town and I got a call from my boss saying the detective that arrested him called looking for me saying he had an arrest warrant for me. What do I do?
