Subpoenas
A subpoena is a court order that requires a person to appear in court to give testimony or to present documents and related articles to be produced as evidence at a hearing. A process server or officer will serve a witness personally with a subpoena. The City may also ask a witness to appear voluntarily without serving a subpoena.

If you have received a subpoena, follow the instructions on it. Failing to follow a subpoena is considered contempt of court and a warrant may be issued for your arrest.


Warrants
If you fail to appear on your court date or comply with the court's orders, the Municipal Court Judge can issue a warrant for your arrest. If you are stopped by an officer for any reason, the officer will arrest you and take you into custody.
