Can I be arrested for a warrant in Massachusetts if I go to the local DMV in Massachusetts?

Q:  Can I be arrested for a misdemeanor warrant in Massachusetts if I go to the local DMV in Massachusetts?

If there is a warrant, you can be arrested at any time. They don’t specifically have people standing by to take you into custody at the DMV, but certainly, law enforcement could take you into custody if present (or if called). They also would be unlikely to renew license or assist you with an outstanding warrant at the DMV.

You never want to walk around with an outstanding warrant. Go to the court, remove the default and deal with this case. You are much better to walk in on your own to resolve this than to be taken to Court in handcuffs after arrest.

Contact our office if you would like assistance with this or any other related issue.
