Answer:

A warrant is issued by a court to provide the legal authority for the sheriff or police to arrest someone. It doesn't necessarily mean you will go to jail. The warrant is issued because the court wants you to come in and deal with whatever matter is before the court that it has been unable to otherwise get you to come in and deal with. It could be for something as easy to take care of as parking tickets. A.R.S. §13-810 is one of many laws that allows the court to issue warrants and that law specifies that they can be issued for not paying fines, such as parking tickets. If you pay the fines, it is likely the warrant, if issued for that, would be cancelled. You should try to find out what court issued the warrant. If you don't know, you can call your local police and tell them you have a warrant you want to take care of and could they please tell you what court the warrant came from. Then contact the clerk of that court to arrange to come in and deal with whatever caused the warrant.
