A: A warrant can be served any time, depending on the seriousness of the offense and if the defendant is considered dangerous or not. If it is just a misdemeanor check to see if bond can be posted. Generally the sooner a defendant gets out of the warrant status the better. It is better to address it proactively versus waiting to be arrested.
