In 2004 I absconded from my probation on misd drug poss in Az.
In the meantime I have been living in Fl. I was recently cited for open container. At the time I was cited I was not arrested. I had been confronted by a police officer once before that and he entered my Fl drivers license into his in car computer but didn't call dispatch. Obviously I was not arrested. Now I have a court date which I must appear for this open container citation. 3 of my co-workers where with me. One has gone to court and his charge was dismissed. the other 2 got continuances. Those 3 guys got the same judge and the 2 that have not been to court can see online their cases are dismissed. I was given a different judge with a different court date and my charge is still pending. I feel paranoid.
Is it possible I wasn't run through the system at the time of the initial citation but now they found it. Has anyone heard of this before? Am I going to be arrested in court? Seems like they would just come to my house and pick me up as my address is on the citation I received in the mail. Would they wait for me to walk into court to do something?
