    If they catch you, you can be arrested at the C-store down the road.

    We have no information on the pickup radius of the warrant or whether it's an interstate warrant. Talk to your lawyer.

    I don't have a lawyer. Is there any other way to find that out?

    You can call the prison and ask ... chances are they won't tell you because they're not likely to do that legwork unless you are there. You can also call the agency that issued the warrant and see if they are willing to extradite you.

    Bottom line is that so long as this warrant exists, it will dog you. If not in this, in other areas. It can prevent access to good jobs, can cause you to be detained for long hours and even days if you are stopped, it can prevent access to government back loans and welfare, and a host of other benefits. So it might be a good idea to deal with it, anyway.
