Ask a Cop: When do arrest warrants expire?

Sgt. Chris Yagelski

Q: My boyfriend got into a small bar fight about a month ago. This really was not his fault and he just happened to be in the wrong place at the wrong time. Well apparently, they decided to issue a warrant for his arrest. He is currently supporting me and my 2-year-old son and of course does not want to go to jail for something he really did not do. How long does he have to hide before the warrant expires?

A: You can run but you can’t hide!
