What Is the Texas Warrant Roundup?
Roundups are part of Texas traditions, but they usually have to do with cattle running. However, warrant roundups have become part of Texas traditions as well and are performed every year. Over 300 law enforcement agencies participate in the Texas Warrant Roundup. What this means is that extra officers are assigned to track down and arrest people with outstanding warrants for unpaid traffic tickets. They can arrest you at home, at work, at school, or anywhere that they find you. This roundup is done in an effort to clear the backlog of as many open arrest warrants as possible. It happens between February and early March, and Arlington and Grand Prairie are going through it right now.
So, if you haven’t paid or settled your ticket in court, an automatic arrest warrant is issued and you could get arrested during 2022’s warrant roundup.
Additional Reasons an Arrest Warrant Can Be Issued in Your Name
Aside from not paying a ticket, an arrest warrant can be issued in your name for the following reasons:
- Failure to appear to a scheduled court date
- Incompletion of a required or court-ordered driving safety course
- Not abiding by probation terms which results in your probation being revoked
- Failure to fulfill terms of community service
- Default on payments arranged by the court
What Happens If You’ve Been Rounded Up in Arlington, Texas?
If you are arrested for an unpaid ticket or any other reason mentioned above, you will most likely be taken to the Arlington Police Department Jail. There, your picture and fingerprints are taken, your items are documented, and you are assigned to a cell. You are allowed a phone call, as well as told when your arraignment date is. This date is when you will face the judge and they will tell you what you are convicted of.
People that are just arrested because of an unpaid traffic ticket are almost always allowed to post bail. The judge will let you know what the bail amount is (usually the amount of the unpaid citations plus additional fees). A-EZ Out Bail Bonds will bail you out, no matter the amount.
