Hi

Hospitals do not have access to warrant information.

When he gets the police file at his next court date, what happened must be disclosed to him.

It could be that he was just recognized or there was some reason to call police and they ran his name or.....????

But just showing up at hospital does not equal a call to police over an outstanding warrant.
