Consequences of Not Handling Your Citation

Arrest warrants issued out of the Post Municipal Court are addressed to any peace officer of the State of Texas. With active arrest warrants, you may be arrested at any time at your home, your place of business, or while operating a motor vehicle. You must contact the court and/or comply with court orders by the deadline given in order to avoid an arrest warrant being issued. Additional fees and costs will be assessed against you.

Fail to Appear Charge

If you fail to appear or make arrangements on a citation/charge in the Municipal Court, a “Fail to Appear” charge will be filed against you, in addition to the original charge(s).


Once the fail to appear charge has been filed, a warrant for your arrest will be issued. The court will also issue an arrest warrant if you fail to:

  • Comply with the orders of the judge
  • Complete a payment plan or make payments as promised
