A bench warrant for your arrest can be issued for a number of legitimate reasons. If you are a no-show on the day you are supposed to be in court, the judge is likely to issue a bench warrant for your arrest. Even if you fail to show up for proceedings involving a moving traffic violation, the judge could choose to issue a bench warrant for your arrest.
A judge may sign off on a warrant for your arrest if you are a suspect in a crime that is being investigated. This does not mean you are guilty of any crime, but you could be arrested anyway. If you have been arrested, the first thing you will want to do is call 1st Assured Bail Bonds in Grand Rapids and speak to a bondsman.
