I was just issued a warrant for an unpaid ticket will I be arrested when I report for probation?

You are subject to arrest at any time: at the PO meeting, driving there, etc. If you plead to a fine (as opposed to doing nothing) then the fine must be paid or served out to lift the warrant.

You could be. You should hire a local experienced traffic ticket attorney to help you resolve your traffic ticket warrant.

Yes. But DON'T take that risk. If you have an Irving traffic warrant you can save yourself some drama by simply calling the Irving court and asking them, "Is my warrant attorney bondable." If they say yes, then you can call a local ticket attorney and the attorney can simply post an attorney bond for you. This will IMMEDIATELY lift your warrant , alleviate un-needed stress, and it also allows you to get a new court date for your Irving ticket so you can try and keep it off your driving record. If the clerks tell you no, don't panic, all you have to do is fill out their payment plan form at the court. MOST municipal courts will NOT arrest you when you are going up there to deal with their ticket. The goal is to encourage citizens to handle their tickets. If you need additional assistance, feel free to reach out to me as I practice in your area. Best of luck!
