A: If you have a warrant for your arrest you will be arrested the next time you come in contact with a police officer. Warrants, especially for misdemeanor cases, are extremely easy to resolve. Hire a lawyer and follow their advice. However, if you go renew your ID you will very likely be arrested by the police officer they keep at DPS for just this reason. Take care of your warrant before you get your ID. Good luck.
