The warrant was due to Kerrion failing to appear in court back in 2007 after being cited for 3 misdemeanors.

The charges were listed as falsely representing self to officer, possession of purported government issued California driver's license/California identification, and possession of alcohol under 21.

Kerrion appeared before a judge who determined Kirk’s son was to be released. The reality star posted his first selfie since being freed noting his legal troubles were far from over.

"When troubles of any kind come your way, consider it all great joy. For you know that when your faith is tested, your endurance has a chance to grow," he said.

“The journey is not over yet 1 more case left to handle,” Kerrion explained on Instagram.
