A: Hi - if they are threatening a warrant, there is a good chance you are going to be charged with a violation of the law. They are most likely attempting to speak with you prior the charge(s) being filed in order to get a statement from you, which can only hurt you at this point. Once charges are actually filed, your right to counsel automatically attaches to the situation, and the police would not be permitted to speak with you. I would highly suggest you retain counsel in order to speak on your behalf and handle any warrant (if it's issued) and surrender to the court.
