Probably a bench warrant being issued for you for Failure To Appear.
It is not a felony, but you will have a warrant put out for your arrest if you continue to ignore the ticket. Below is a link about failure to appear.
A person can receive a passport if they have a misdemeanor warrant. However, they may not be able to use the passport and leave the country if a warrant is pending.
lol. no but if you don't go to court because you got a misdimeanor...then now you prolly have a bench warrant
Warrants don't "turn into" something different. When a warrant is issued it is either issued for a misdemeanor or a felony offense. It doesn't change.
YES.. a bench Warrant means there is a Judge that wants to see you. do to non compliance with court orders, failure to appear etc. Only a Judge can issue a Bench Warrant. this answer refers to California. i'm unsure about other states. :)
It depends on the particular state whether the police can serve an arrest warrant for a misdemeanor.
charged on a revocation warrant
