Thye best way to try and resolve the outstanding arrest warrant against you in another state for a bad check is to retain a criminal defense attorney in the county and state where the warrant has arisen to first get it cleared and then represent you in that matter.

You possibly could be extradited to the other state if you are arrested in the state that you are in and if the outstanding felony arrest warrant pops up.
