An arrest warrant, which calls for the immediate apprehension and arrest of a person, is issued by a district court judge as a result of a suspected commission of a crime and/or failure to follow an order of the court. Additionally, warrants may be issued for a violation of probation, violation of pre-trial supervision, failure to appear in court, or for failure to abide by certain civil court orders.
