    Yes, if there was a good warrant outstanding, you are subject to arrest at any time or place.

    If a person has an outstanding warrant against them, they can be arrested for the warrant at any time.

    You do not have to have your rights read to you at the time of detention, so this was perfectly legal.

    You need to get your legal problems straightened out as soon as possible, it is never good to have outstanding warrants for any reason.

    Good luck in the future.

    Miranda Rights are only if you're going to be questioned/interrogated.
