Can you be deported/arrested for having an expired visa?
I have a legal passport but did not
leave the country back and forth and
now I have an expired visa (for
years). I am unable to drive because
DMV will not renew my drivers
license unless I get a green card. I
am able to travel within the US, but
I am afraid that I may be arrested. Is
this possible? I heard of a story of
Brittney Murphy's fiance being
arrested for an expired passport.

First, you need to contact an immigration lawyer immediately. Second, the mere fact that you have a valid non-US passport is not sufficient. You need to be in the US legally. Having overstayed your visa is very serious and you need to be in touch with an able lawyer in this field right away.
