    Most likely. Why not go back where the warrent is, and get it cleared up?
    Otherwise, you get arrested for No ID, and then get extridited, and the court may make you pay for the costs of extradition.

      You Could Get Arrested.

      They will run you and it will show up now it will have to be determined what pick up radius warrant has. They may not be willing to spend the money to come get you unless you are a wanted felon. Warrants have pick up radius attached when entered on NCIC.

      Get it cleared up by calling back home and finding out what you have to do.

      WE arrest opeople at the records office all day long and the highway patrol gets at the DMV to

        I have a knucklehead in the town that I work in that has about 5K-6K in California warrants and his Driver's License has been suspened because of the non-payment. They are all non-extraditable....trust me, if I thought I could get away with carting his sorry *** out there, I would.
        He can't get a Misosuri Driver's License until he takes care of the warrants. Needless to say, I have personally hooked his *** up on 5 No DL tickets in the last 6 months. He's going to end up in jail here because of it.......
        My advice is to go out and get them taken care of.....before you get bit in the *** and end up in jail......

          well...

          I am going to school in California now. The warrant is from TX, a simple battery, mis. I have never had anything on my record before then...This happened right before I was moving to california...I got an attorney, went to court and they told me the best they could do was put me on probation and I couldnt leave the state. So, because I was going to school I just left. I DO have a TX ID, its just about to expire. My attorney said they probably wouldnt extradite me but he didnt recommend it. He didnt recommend I leave. But I wasnt going to sit in TX for a year when all my school, loans, etc. decisions, had already gone through. I also figure with all the creeps running around in Cali that they would just let me pass by. I cant think of any other way to clear it up cause TX is hard on this kinda stuff........

            Simple Misd battery? I sincerely doubt Texas would rendite but it's possible that you could get detained/locked up in CA until they confirmed this w/TX .

              Sounds like you have violated your probation. I would imagine the warrant is for a new charge(s) regarding your actions.

              As one of the other officers discussed regarding an individual in his jurisdiction, you will not be allowed to get a DL in Ca and if you are driving it is just a matter of time before you get arrested for driving on a suspended license or no license. Then your cycle will start in Ca.

              The problem will compound itself as you already have an active warrant in Texas. Even if Texas will not extradite you are just adding to your problems by failing to rectify them now. The longer you wait the more problems you will have.

              Furthermore, based on your flight from Texas I would assume a judge will take a hard look at the option of bail vs no bail due to the apparent flight risk.

              Take care of your problems now unless you intend to have this type of behavioral pattern for the rest of your adult life.

                Probably they won't come after you but you won't ever get it off your record until you face it and do the probation. Now for the bad news because you skipped on a court date you may have a FUGITIVE warrant and if that judge back in Texas that told you not to leave is ****ed he may have already decided if you get picked up he will sign the extradition order from ANYWHERE.

                  The California DMV will **NOT** run a records checks for warrants. If that was the case, 1/3 of the stae would be w/o a license.

                  Also, if your warrant is for a MISDEMEANOR, no jail is So Cal that I've dealt with will hold you anyway. It has to be a FELONY warrant that they will extradite on. It's been my experience lately that states don't want to pay too much $$ to extradite any more. I think they figure that since you're in another state, you are that state's problem.

                  We have one guy with an FELONY ESCAPE warrant from Washington and another with a KIDNAPPING warrant from Connecticut and they won't extradite from California.

                    The fact that you have to worry about this should be enough motivation for you to take care of it. Go back to Texas and face up to what you've done. Whatever happens, when it's over you can go on with your life and not worry about it anymore.

                      Peace officer from Texas here...could be an "Assault by Contact" charge. It is a Class C Misdemeanor, which is a fine only punishment. Hardly something you would go on probation for. Thus, more likely you have an "Assault-Bodily Injury" charge against you, which is a Class A Misdemeanor...something you could do jail time for but are often plead out to deferred ajudication (probation) for first time offenders. If that is the case, since you have a warrant out for you now, you will be less likely to get a deal and more like to serve the time (up to a year in the county jail).

                      Will this affect you in Cali? Hard to say. If Cali and TX have an agreement with each other, you could have you license suspended but I couldn't be sure about that. You may just want to suck it up and take care of this...I promise you, it will catch up to you sooner or later. Esp if you ever come back to TX...probably won't get arrested for it in Cali though. I don't think anything but felony warrants go into NCIC...least here in TX.

                        yeah, i originally went to court the first time with my attorney and told me the best i could do was pleaguilyt -deferred j. and get probation. So I actually never went back to court to plea. so yeah, i guess Im a felon. I have been living in Cali for about a year and a half...The thing is, Yes, I need to get on with my life, but going back to TX and sitting on probation is not really getting on with my life ya know. Im in school now and theres not much I can do...I would LOVE to take care of it, but man, that seems a little harsh for a first time offender! Yes, it was considered "simple battery".
                        ---they wouldnt even let me pay a fine.
                        -Are there even police officers AT the dmv?
                        thanks for the advice so far, but I just have no idea what im going to do. I dont drive but I kinda need an I.D. for other things you know.

                            Why Bother Asking For Advice?

                            Never underestimate the BMV, they are pretty sly. While you are waiting for the "paperwork" to be processed, in walks a police officer. Guess what, he has the paperwork-an arrest warrant.

                            Look, if you have decided not to do the right thing then you need to go on about your business. There is no reason for you to be hanging around here.

                            Don't cry like a little girl. Man up.
