    Your best bet is to contact a criminal defense attorney, so that s/he can find out what is going on and straighten out the issues. Do not wait to get arrested.

    Answered . Do not wait to get arrested. You need to go down to the court house and ask for the matter to be set for a hearing. You should consult a criminal attorney and hire one if you can afford it. Otherwise - the court may appoint a public defender. You need to clear up the warrant - otherwise - some routine traffic stop could turn into a messy arrest and cost you a great deal more in time and money.
