A: Taking a friend to Walmart who had a warrant is not obstructing legal process so there must be more going on here. I’m assuming you are being accused of more than just driving your friend to Walmart. This is a serious charge. You need representation.

A: The question is missing something. But I have seen cases where a police officer is arresting a person; and a second person interferes with that arrest. Then the police officer accuses that second person of "obstructing legal process." In any event, an experienced criminal defense attorney can help the person accused accomplish her goal in the case. That goal may be to avoid a conviction record. Call me or another defense attorney.
