If you are a citizen, misdemeanor criminal convictions shouldn't impact your citizenship. If you are hoping to obtain citizenship, you can't get an answer you can rely on from a free Q & A website. Consult an immigration lawyer.
This answer is provided for general information only. No legal advice can be given without a consult as to the specifics of the case.
Your criminal history shows a lack of good moral character for failing to appear in court as summoned and eluding authorities. I hope you have enough common sense to retain a licensed immigration counsel as your case badly needs one.
