So I got accused of stealing money from my job they would never give me a time date or could even show proof that I stole anything.. They had me arrested and the cop had to call the d.a to see if I should go to jail or not. However he never took me in he said I would have a warrant out for my arrest.
In general in Texas, a warrant is required to make an arrest. The police can't make an arrest on the spot unless they witness the crime, except for family violence or a felony. I assume your case is a misdemeanor and they didn't witness it. That's why they had to let you go and get a warrant. Get a lawyer to check on the warrant, talk to a bondsman about getting released and then turn yourself in. If you have a lawyer he can show up with you and shorten the time it takes to get released on bond.
Sometimes the officer does not yet have sufficient admissible evidence to clear the hurdle of probable cause to make the arrest. This is most common when the victim has not yet identified the defendant (in a photo array or otherwise) or when an officer is waiting to get the results of a blood test before filing DWI charges. It's frustrating, but it does give you an advantage. If you are aware that a warrant exists, and if there is a bond, you can post a no arrest bond and not have to spend unexpected time in jail.
The Code of Criminal Procedure says when a police officer can make an arrest without a warrant and this is not one of those situations. You probably were NOT "arrested;" you were likely "detained" and then released when the cop found that he couldn't arrest you without the warrant. Now would be a good time to start calling lawyers.
