Best Answer

Usually an arrest warrant for failure to appear/pay. Well, if you had shown up, you would have immediately won and not had to pay. As of now, there is probably a warrant out for your arrest due to failure to appear and having an outstanding ticket. * If neither party appears or if the arresting officer fails to appear the case is dismissed with or without prejudice.
