If you have a warrant you should make the bond and hire a lawyer. While it may seem like a rather minor charge, it could have long term consequences including affecting your future and your driver's license. (And, if there is a warrant for your arrest, you have been charged even if you have not yet been arrested.)
A lawyer will be able to determine the facts of the arrest and may even be able to get the evidence suppressed and the case dismissed. Otherwise, the lawyer may be able to work a deal which will protect your record and your future.
You should hire an attorney under these circumstances. You have several important rights as a criminal defendant. An attorney could review the case for you and advise you regarding how to proceed with the case. You should not speak to the police without legal counsel.
When looking for an attorney, there are a few things I usually recommend. Find someone who not only practices criminal defense but someone who has handled similar cases to yours. Find someone who appears often in the courthouse where your case will be heard. Ask about their experience and familiarity with the judges and prosecutors there. Also, set up an initial consultation to determine whether they're a good fit for you. These things don't guarantee a result, but in my opinion they can give you an advantage. If you have further questions, feel free to give me a call. If you need a referral, I can recommend a defense attorney who should be able to help. 1-800-517-1614.
