My wife and I were pulled over last night in NV. The officer

My wife and I were pulled over last night in NV. The officer was deciding whether he should arrest my wife or not as there is an arrest warrant out for a female person with her same body bio and bd. The only discrepancy was that my wife's first name is ***** ***** single character different. The warrant was issued from the Reno PD in 2004 for insufficient funds. My wife is Vietnamese, as is the person I assume is on the warrant, however my wife did not come to be with me in the US until Sept 2, 2008 as is stamped on her US Entry I-94. We married in Nov 2008 on a K1 Visa. My wife is absolutely NOT the person they are looking for, but was told any time she gets her license searched by any officer he/she may decide to arrest her on probable cause and ultimately be extradited to a Reno jail for a warrant that isn't even for her, but only because she shares a very similar name and same bio and bd! This is nuts, what can we do? Oh the officer did tell me the warrant has no picture or ssn, so us providing that information was not helpful. This officer decided not t oarrest her because he was not convinced she was the correct person based on our answers and reactions I suppose. The officer suggested I call the Reno PD of Records, would that be the place to start? I assume the warrant is legit for whomever the person is they want, so I'm not sure how calling them is going to resolve future run in's with this issue. How do I make sure my wife isn't going to get caught up being arrested by an overzealous officer with an attitude or just let the system sort it out? As you can imagine this has us completely perplexed. The thought of my wife whom is very inexperienced with US culture and has never been in any type of trouble, ever, has us both on edge. If she were alone at the time, I'm sure she would have been taken to jail for a lack of understanding for what was going on and limited understanding of what the officer was explaining. Shes never owned a checking account.-SKJA: The Lawyer will need to help you with this. Have you consulted a lawyer yet?Customer: Not yet, the officer suggest I call Reno PDJA: Is there anything else important you think the Lawyer should know?Customer: I think I covered it in the message.JA: OK.
