So, I got a speeding ticket in eastern Nevada (I live in Tahoe) in January. I was stupid and forgot to pay it, and everything. Regardless, I got a letter in the mail that I "Failed to appear" for my ticket and my fine went up to 522, and there is a warrent for my arrest, so if I get pulled over, or appear in court for something else, apparently they will arrest me and take me in (I know I'm a dumbass, we can get that out of the way) Anyway, I'm trying to get the money for that taken care of, but meanwhile, my friend borrowed my car and parked it in front of a fire hydrant and got me a 305 dollar ticket, basically, the jackass said he won't pay it, but he is willing to go to court with me and try to get the ticket down. Only problem is, I am going back to NH in mid may and my court date for the 31st of May. I was going to call and get the court date moved, but my roommate told me, If I do go to court for it early, they will arrest me there if I hadn't taken care of the speeding thing yet.
Would it be ok to call them to change the court date, or would they come and arrest me? Basically I need help figuring out what to do.
Hopefully this made sense.
