Thank you for using JustAnswer. Probably not. All states can hold a person for extradition...it is not the state that arrests you that has the final say...its the state that issued the warrant that has the final say on this matter. Since they (in this case Alabama) have to pay the costs to extradite, in many cases they will waive off on a misdemeanor
warrant...but they are NOT required to.So if there is a warrant, the warrant might say if the state (Alabama) plans to extradite, it could be that the person is arrested, and spends a few days in jail while the state (Alabama) confirms they will extradite. As I said, it's not likely for a misdemeanor, but not outside of the realm of possibility. In my experience, states will only extradite for felony warrants, and even then only in serious ones such as murder, arson, rape
, etc... , because of the costs involved in the extradition hearings and transportation of the defendant. Otherwise, they're not going to pay the costs to extradite someone from one state to another, especially if it's an old, minor charge. Hope that clears things up a bit.
