    Answered . For an infraction, they won't necessarily arrest you. But if they connect I with you at your hearing (if it is out of the same county), then they will bring it up and have you deal with it then.

    Answered . Get your warrant handled before you go to court. Its easily done once you run the warrant. If you dont know how to find the warrant we do. Feel free to give a ring.

    Answered . If you were on probation for the 1st DUI, probation requires you to "obey all laws" there may also be alcohol restrictions as a result of your 1st DUI. If the infraction is alcohol related, it could violate your probation. Violation of probation is then an issue of concern. Meet with a lawyer who can go back and look at your caae history and get some professional advice. Manyy attorney's off free consultations.

    Answered . if there is a warrant there is a good chance they will connect the dots but I don't see how a petty traffic ticket would result in a warrant.
