I'm in bond in one county and on that bond I have a warrant . But I have court in another county this evening will the county that I have court in this evening arrest me . Both cases are misdemeanors
They can arrest you and then transfer you to the other county where you have an open warrant.
In some courts, they do not check for warrants when defendants show up for court. You can call the court clerk and ask, but you can't necessarily be sure they will tell you the truth.
The safest option would be to hire an attorney to represent you in court tonight. You could also hire an attorney to lift the warrant for you and represent you for the misdemeanor in the other court.
If you hire an attorney to lift your warrant and represent you for the underlying charge, you won't have to pay the bond, turn yourself in to police, or appear in court. However, if you have a history of multiple warrants (in which you paid the bond to lift the warrant and then didn't appear on your court date and the court re-issued the warrant), your attorney may not be able to lift the warrant for you.
