Can a rent-to-own store have me arrested and put in jail for pawning it's merchandise?

Question Details:

I pawned a 42" plasma television set as well as a PlayStation 3 that was under lease. The General Manager has threatened to throw me in jail because of it. The pawn shop has not sold the property yet and I still have 5 days to pick up their property and take it back to them. He told me that if they don't have the property back by 01/14/11, he will go to the police to swear out a warrant for my arrest. What are my options? I am a husband with 3 children and I need all of the help that I can get.
