In most circumstances one cannot be arrested for a past due debt. What kind of warrant was issued? What did they allege you did that violated a criminal law? Bankruptcy does not stop criminal prosecutions so if there is a pending criminal charge against you, then the bankruptcy will not stop the police from arresting you.

Was there really a "warrant" out for your arrest or did the debt collector illegally say to you that there is a warrant out for your arrest? If the latter is the case, then the debt collector may have violated the federal Fair Debt Collection Practices Act and/or the Florida Consumer Collection Practices Act. Unfortunately, your question makes it very unclear what is really going on.
