The only way that could be the case would be if a judge had signed a warrant allowing for it. If you are 100% sure, then you don't need to confirm. As for confronting or resolving, don't do anything illegal. Any warrant issued will not be for an indefinite time. Once the time allowed by...Read more »
I was recently ticketed for a 3rd DUI in April of 2018 although I've not been charged as of July 2018. My questions are: Will the 2006 conviction appear making this a 3rd DUI or will it be dropped off making the April 2018 incident a 2nd DUI? Because the first two, 2006 and 2012 were 6... Read more »

There might be a suppression motion here, and there might not. Contact your lawyer about it. From your question, it sounds like you are also on probation. If that's the case, then you are likely subject to search without a warrant. It wouldn't matter if the police were looking for someone else.
