Generally that just means that the person was arrested on an out of county warrant and is sitting in one county jail waiting to see if the other county is going to pick them up. They have to have some sort of charge to justify keeping the person in jail but they don't want to list whatever the actual charges are because they don't apply in the county the person is locked up in. If you call the county jail where the person is actually locked up in they can probably tell you where the warrant originated from.
Once you know what county issued the warrant you might be able to find out what the actual charges are online if it's here in Florida as many of the counties have an online record search on the Clerk of Courts website for that county.

I hope that helps....Niki
