Can you go to jail for repossession of car?
You won’t go to prison for not missing your car payments or for trying peacefully to stop the repossession. In some states, the repo agent can bring an officer or sheriff along for the repossession.

What happens when the police impound your car?
Police officers can impound your car for a variety of reasons. If you are arrested for a traffic violation, like a DUI, and no one else is present and able to drive your car, then they will typically impound it. Illegally parking or abandoning your vehicle also risks impoundment.
