Can I be charged with driving under suspension if I was not actually caught driving a vehicle?

I was issued a warrant for driving under suspension 3rd. An officer on foot patrol says he witnessed me driving a vehicle. A warrant was issued a week after said incident because the officer claims he was on vacation.

Yes, under the laws of all states in this country a person can be charge with a particular criminal offense even if the person charged was not actually caught in the "illegal act" as in the matter claimed against you, namely driving on a suspended driver's license. I suggest that you consult with a criminal defense attorney about the predicament that you are now in.
