She can still demand payment, but if she accepts it, the court is unlikely to evict you unless there are other issues aside from non-payment.

You and your friend should both speak privately with an attorney. The validity of the warrant may be an issue, but it’s not likely to be. Someone needs to review the warrant and accompanying affidavit and all the facts before we will know.
They could be charged with intimidating a witness. It’s likely the defendant would get charged as well. Police and prosecutors will assume he is orchestrating this. Visits and calls should be documented to show that isn’t the case if it isn’t.
