A: This is a ruse perpetrated by police in New York and elsewhere. The only warrant is from a judge and is not likely under your circumstances. Sounds like the officer wants you to come in so he can place you under arrest. If thats the case get an attorney; never go in alone - and if you do say nothing except your name, address, height, weight and other personal information, and state explicitly that you will not talk without an attorney being present.
