A: There shouldn’t be any issue with you flying domestically. Any international travel, however, will almost certainly result in the warrant being flagged and you being arrested. If there is a bond associated with the warrant, you can contact a local bondsman and ask them about doing a “walk thru” which would only involve you spending a few hours in jail.

A: Respectfully, disagree with my colleague. If you have a warrant you dont want to fly. Not likely that you will be extradited for a misdemeanor but the smart move is to resolve the warrant and then fly. Are you flying out of polk county? somewhere close? in and out of Florida. You will be picked up.
