A: There is likely a warrant for your arrest. I advise contacting a local criminal defense lawyer or Public Defender AS SOON AS POSSIBLE. A lawyer can contact the court to arrange to appear for an arraignment rather than surrendering to police custody, calendar a hearing on a warrant prior to arrest, arrange to have you turn yourself in rather than being arrested or determine the amount of outstanding bond.
